Panther Healthcare professional education is our commitment. Bariatric
surgery is a weight loss surgery and a treatment procedure for obesity.
There are various types of gastric procedures such as adjustable gastric
band, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Mini Gastric Bypass, Vertical Sleeve
Gastrectomy and Biliopancreatic Diversion with a Duodenal Switch
(BPD-DS). As per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, more than
1.9 billion adults were overweight out of which 650 million were obese.
