Obesity and Weight Management (Bariatric and Metabolic Centre)
Obesity is currently recognised as a real disease rather than a lifestyle issue. It affects our lives, our independence and extends to family members and people close to us. It plays a major role in our sugar levels (diabetes mellitus), lipid metabolism (hyperlipidemia) and cardio-vascular system.
At Mediclinic Airport Road Hospital, our Bariatric (Obesity) and Metabolic Centre is structured according the international best practice guidelines for the management of obesity. It provides a comprehensive programme that deals with all aspects of obesity. We deliver nutritional, metabolic and surgical services for the management of morbid obesity and uncontrolled weight gain.
The Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Department is led by an expert surgeon with a team of physicians all with the highest levels of western certifications\qualifications along with experts in dietetics and other supporting services who will make sure that each patient receives highly specialised care that is tailored to his individual needs.
The Obesity and Metabolic Surgery team is headed by Professor Safwan Taha, Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, member of the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons, member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
