With more and more people leading a sedentary lifestyle while consuming foods that are high in saturated fats, refined sugar and salt, obesity is becoming a growing problem. Being seriously overweight can limit your mobility and satisfaction of life, but what is even worse is that it can also lead to potentially dangerous diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.
Our Bariatric Unit is a new specialised section within the Asiri group of hospitals. Bariatric surgery is an operation that is performed in order to help you lose weight when other means to do so have been unsuccessful. Evidence suggests that bariatric surgery may lower death rates of patients with severe obesity, especially when coupled with healthy eating and lifestyle changes after surgery.
We have put together a group of healthcare professionals that are geared to help you lead a healthier lifestyle. This team comprises bariatric surgeons, experienced nurses, dietary specialists, counsellors and physio-therapists who work seamlessly together to help you back into a healthier and happier lifestyle.
