This is one of the most the frequently asked questions when patients come for consultation. I think this question mainly stems from our perception that obesity is not a disease. The moment we change that perception and think that we are treating a disease just like any other disease, this question loses its significance. All medications and operations that are used to treat any disease lead to some alterations in our bodies which may be perceived by some people as unnatural. However, these are necessary to get our health back in order and lead a healthy life once again. All routinely practiced surgeries, including bariatric surgery have been studied for decades and have proven favourable results. In short, if there is a problem, it needs to be fixed.
