For most people, the word “surgery” itself is enough to induce fear. When getting into a surgery, people are scared of complications and sometimes even of death. However, we must remember that any surgery is performed to either save life or to make life better. Are there risks involved? Yes. Ofcourse. But the benefits usually far outweigh the risks. When it comes to bariatric surgery, it is the same. The complication rate after bariatric surgery in mumbai is very low and is comparable to any other surgery. In this video we have discussed the complications after bariatric surgery. However, I would like to say that please do not let the fear of complications hold you back from taking the right decision. If you are suffering from obesity, you must also think about the future problems associated with obesity if it is left untreated due to fear of complications. During our consults we usually have a detailed discussion about all possible complications. However, this is not to deter patients from getting surgery done. We believe that a well-informed patient fares much better in the post-surgery period. We choose to be realistically optimistic than to be pessimistic about disease and its treatment.
