Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy in Mumbai India is a type of weight-loss/bariatric surgery. Best doctor or surgeon for performing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy must have the following qualities:
- Training and experience in performing laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy: Patients suffering from severe obesity are a very difficult subset of patients. Severe obesity leads to a lot of intra-abdominal fat and enlarged livers, thus making it very difficult for the surgeon to operate. Hence it is extremely important that the surgeon is specially trained for bariatric surgery and to be able to deal with excessive obesity. A well-trained surgeon will have lesser complications and better outcomes.
- Best surgeon or doctor for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy or gastric surgery in mumbai must also be approachable to her/his patients. After other surgeries, usually the work of the surgeon gets over once the patient is discharged from the hospital. This does not happen after bariatric surgery as these patients need life-long support. Hence it is very important for your surgeon to be approachable and responsive. An approachable surgeon will have an approachable team. A surgeon who understands this is definitely one of the best surgeons for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
- Another attribute of the best surgeon or doctor for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy is that of giving ‘time’ to the patient. A surgeon or doctor must give you ample time during the consultations to guide you about the surgery and take an informed decision. The best doctor or bariatric surgeon will also guide you about the follow up protocol after bariatric surgery. Please remember, follow up with the bariatric team is life-long. She/he will also lay stress on attending support group meetings as these are a good way of keeping up the motivation after bariatric surgery in india.
In short the best doctor or surgeon for laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy must be compassionate, have a strong work ethic, be knowledgeable and professional and have the passion for this branch of surgery.
