Medical Management of Obesity
Long considered a lifestyle disorder, Obesity is increasingly becoming a health concern for India, one that predisposes patients to many life threatening disorders.
While it requires surgical intervention for morbid cases, Obesity and its health implications are largely misunderstood. As an association of bariatric surgeons in India, OSSI aims to create & disseminate information on Obesity to educate & help not only the morbidly obese but also readers who may wish to learn more about this medical condition.
Our blog aims to facilitate knowledge & experience sharing on surgical treatments, new techniques and research for the advancement of bariatric treatments in India, with each article thoughtfully contributed.
A comprehensive approach for long-term weight reduction is needed because of its chronic and relapsing nature including intensive lifestyle intervention characterized by dietary restriction, increased physical activity and behavioral changes, pharmacologic therapy and bariatric surgery.
