Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker Leads a Successful Bariatric Surgery for Mumbai Businessman
A team led by Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker, a renowned consultant bariatric surgeon in Mumbai, has achieved a significant breakthrough in the treatment of a 40-year-old businessman with a history of leg amputation. The patient’s weight gain, coupled with the impact of COVID-19 and steroid-induced avascular necrosis, had severely affected his mobility and overall well-being.
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Leads to Dramatic Weight Loss and Improved Quality of Life
The patient, Nilesh Ramyash Tiwari, had undergone a right leg amputation as a result of a tragic road accident during his childhood. Over the years, he gradually gained weight and faced additional health challenges, including a severe COVID-19 infection and steroid treatment. These factors led to avascular necrosis in both hip joints, further hindering his mobility. However, after undergoing a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, Mr. Tiwari experienced a remarkable weight loss and improved quality of life.
Bariatric Surgery: A Lifeline for Severe Obesity and Medical Conditions
Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker, an expert in bariatric surgery, explains that bariatric surgery is the most effective method for sustained weight loss in patients with severe obesity. In Mr. Tiwari’s case, a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy was performed, creating a sleeve-like pouch in the stomach that restricts food intake and induces hormonal changes, resulting in weight loss.
Importance of Post-Bariatric Surgery Nutrition and Lifestyle Modification
Ms. Mariam Lakdawala, a bariatric nutritionist, emphasizes the significance of post-bariatric surgery nutrition and lifestyle modifications. By focusing on a nutrient-rich diet, regular supplementation, and moderate physical activity, patients can achieve long-term success in maintaining their weight loss and overall health.
Patient’s Remarkable Transformation and Second Lease of Life
After undergoing bariatric surgery, Mr. Nilesh Ramyash Tiwari lost an impressive 43 kilograms within a span of nine months. He now experiences increased energy levels, reduced hip joint pain, and improved mobility. Mr. Tiwari expresses his gratitude to Dr. Aparna Govil Bhasker and Ms. Mariam Lakdawala for helping him regain his life and looks forward to continuing his weight loss journey.
