Dr. Amit Bhatt was 36 years old when he underwent a laparoscopic Roux en-y gastric bypass. His weight was 140 kg at the time of surgery. He suffered from childhood obesity which continued through his adulthood. Despite multiple efforts to lose weight, he continued to gain weight consistently. At 140 Kgs he suffered from sleep apnoea and joint pains. It was becoming difficult to get through a normal day. His wife, Dr. Anjali Bhatt, an endocrinologist herself convinced him to undergo bariatric surgery. He underwent a laparoscopic Roux en-y gastric bypass in Mumbai on 14th February, 2017. The best part about him is that he has embraced behaviour and lifestyle modification, one hundred percent. He works out in the gym for 60 to 90 minutes every day and is enjoying his new life with a renewed confidence.
Dr. Amit Bhatt was operated by Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker, a bariatric surgeon based in Mumbai and associated with Global, Apollo group, Currae, Namaha and Suchak hospitals.
