Case Stories

Mrs SB, a 56 year old female, has already fought a battle with endometrial cancer. Her cancer surgeon recommended bariatric surgery as an option, so that losing her excess weight would reduce her risk of developing cancer again. (It has been proven in international studies that losing excess weight prevents the occurrence of breast and endometrial cancers.) In addition, she also had Uncontrolled Type II Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension and Hypothyroidism. Within 6 months of undergoing Laparoscopic Banded Sleeve Gastrectomy, not only has she lost weight, her Diabetes and blood pressure are under control, and the dosage for her thyroid medicines has decreased. She is now more active and energetic.
