Bariatric Surgery / Weight Loss Surgery at Canadian Specialist Hospital

Canadian Specialist Hospital's expert weight loss specialists have transformed the lives of patients across the GCC region. Our comprehensive support network ensures you receive all the guidance and care needed from our specialist nurses and dietitians to maximize the benefits of your surgery.

Understanding Obesity and Its Impact

Being overweight or obese can significantly affect both your physical and mental well-being. It can:

- Negatively impact self-confidence and self-esteem

- Increase risk for serious health conditions such as:

- Type 2 diabetes

- Cancer

- Heart disease

- Sleep apnea

- Osteoarthritis

Patient Information: Obesity is defined as having a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. It's a complex condition influenced by genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. Even modest weight loss (5-10% of body weight) can significantly improve health outcomes.

If you've struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise alone, bariatric surgery can provide the extra support you need to shed significant amounts of weight and improve your overall health.

Our Approach

At Canadian Specialist Hospital, we offer a personalized approach to weight loss surgery. Our team of bariatric surgery specialists is experienced in all key weight-loss surgical procedures. We'll help you choose the treatment that's right for your unique needs, empowering you to enjoy a healthier, more confident life.

Patient Information: The journey to bariatric surgery involves several steps, including:

1. Initial consultation and health assessment

2. Nutritional and psychological evaluations

3. Pre-surgery education and preparation

4. The surgical procedure

5. Post-surgery recovery and lifestyle changes

6. Long-term follow-up care

Weight Loss Treatments We Offer

1. Gastric Bypass: Reduces stomach size and reroutes the digestive system

Patient Information: This procedure typically results in 60-80% excess weight loss within 12-18 months. It requires significant lifestyle changes, including vitamin supplementation, to prevent nutritional deficiencies.

2. Sleeve Gastrectomy: Removes a large portion of the stomach to limit food intake

Patient Information: Patients can expect to lose 50-60% of excess weight within 12-18 months. This procedure is not reversible but may be revised if necessary.

3. Adjustable Gastric Banding: Places an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach

Patient Information: This is a reversible procedure with slower weight loss (40-50% excess weight loss over 3 years). It requires regular follow-ups for band adjustments.

4. Intragastric Balloon: Non-surgical option where a balloon is placed in the stomach to reduce food intake

Patient Information: This temporary solution (6 months) is suitable for those with lower BMIs or as a bridge to surgery. Average weight loss is 10-15% of total body weight.
