Centre for Obesity and Diabetes Control, Mumbai has partnered with Kalda Hospital Raipur, an ultra-modern 120 bedded specialty hospital to bring world class bariatric surgery solutions to patients in Raipur and Chattisgarh.
Dr Abhay Agrawal will now be available once a month at Raipur as a part of this collaboration for performing Bariatric surgeries to resolve morbid obesity and co-morbidities such as diabetes.
Obesity is no more a rich man’s disease and needs a war waged to win against it as the incidence of obesity is reaching epidemic proportions in India cutting across all socio economic class.
Obesity Awareness and Consultation Camp organized on the inaugural day of this partnership on Sunday 16 April attracted about 100 patients who took benefit of Dr Abhay’s availability and consultation.
The first two surgeries (sleeve gastrectomy and mini gastric bypass) too were performed on the same day on previously short listed patients. Both patients are recovering very well.
