Excess fat accumulation in the body causes many diseases, impairs quality of life and shortens life expectancy. Obesity and obesity-related diseases are the second most common cause of death worldwide.

Surgeries

Bariatric surgery is the most effective, safe and permanent form of weight loss known in the treatment of obesity. There is no increased risk for patients compared to other intra-abdominal surgeries. Except for special cases, almost all of the surgeries are performed by laparoscopic, that is, closed method. Patients are discharged on the 2nd or 3rd day after surgery.
