About the department
The Department of General Surgery at the Primus Super Speciality Hospital New Delhi offers the full range of surgical interventions in the area of its specialization. One of the key focuses is bariatric surgery. The department has state-of-the-art surgical equipment, so the operations are mainly performed using sparing minimally invasive techniques. The department's surgeons have rich experience and impeccable reputation not only in their home country, but also throughout the world.
The department is headed by Dr. med. Rajat Goel. He is a highly qualified surgeon with 11 years of experience in laparoscopic surgery. In addition, he has performed about 650 bariatric surgical interventions.
The department's doctors prefer minimally invasive surgery, which is the gold standard in modern medicine. During surgery, they insert a special instrument, called laparoscope, and other miniature surgical instruments into the abdominal cavity through small incisions (3-12 mm). A tiny video camera is attached to the laparoscope, which shows the internal organs and the surgical field on high-resolution monitors. The incisions during such operations are usually closed with surgical glue or absorbable suture material, so sutures are barely noticeable after a few weeks. The main advantages of such operations include minimal pain, small scars, rapid recovery of the patient and, consequently, a rapid return to his normal life.
Bariatric surgery is one of the main activities in the department. This type of surgery helps people to lose weight and to lead a healthier lifestyle. The treatment of obesity requires a multidisciplinary approach, which includes not only surgical intervention, but also diet, drug therapy, physical activity and psychological support. In this field, the surgeons perform such surgical interventions as laparoscopic gastric banding, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery and laparoscopic mini gastric bypass surgery. All of the above operations help patients to lose about 60-70% of excess weight.
It is worth noting that obesity is not only a cosmetic problem. This pathological condition significantly affects human health and increases the risk of developing such diseases as diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure (hypertension), obstructive sleep apnea and others.
