During the launch, Dr Ramen Goel, Diabetes & Metabolic Surgeon said, “Diabetes Surgery will be a one-stop solution for prompt diabetes management. This surgery for the treatment of diabetes is also called Metabolic Surgery in scientific terms. These surgeries involve laparoscopic (keyhole) stomach size reduction &/or intestinal re-routing. Earlier these surgeries were done for weight loss alone, but with changed guidelines, they can now be offered in >27.5 BMI patients with uncontrolled diabetes, despite the best medical management. This Surgery has been shown to result in an increased lifespan of 9.3 years in diabetes patients.
