Muffazal Lakdawala Gastric SurgeonLeading the TEAM CODS is one of the most finest and reputed laparoscopic and obesity experts, Dr Muffazal Lakdawala. He also leads the way for the largest series of SILS (Single incision Laparoscopic surgeries) in Asia and also the world with a hard to believe success rate. This success rate has earned him the honour of being the Chairman of IFSO (International Federation of the Society of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders) i.e. Position Statement committee of IFSO. It is a federation which includes all the national associations of bariatric surgeons with a goal of safe and effective treatment of highly obese people.


Recently, quite a few famous personalities like Nitin Gadkari, who is the president of the BJP, Venkaiah Naidu, etc. in India, opted for weight loss surgeries from him. He also performed sleeve gastrectomy surgery on a 17 year old teenager who is by far the youngest patient to have undergone this kind of surgery. Dr Muffazal Lakdawala has performed weight loss surgeries on many politicians who are tackling diabetes or heart diseases. Residing in India, he says he has to travel along the metro cities for conducting these surgical procedures on many patients.


He recently performed Gastric bypass surgery on Venkaiah Naidu who is a political leader suffering from diabetes. Mr. Lakdawala said that there are many people who are suffering from diabetes, heart diseases and other co-morbidities because of obesity. The effect of the weight loss surgeries begin 3-4 months after the surgery. Weight loss surgeries are a slow and permanent method to lose weight. These surgeries are recommended to people who are highly obese and who have health problems related to weight.


Facts show that India is the 2nd country, after China, with the highest number of diabetes cases. Millions are spent on research for the cure of diabetes, with negligible results. The current medicines for diabetes give rise to a lot of side effects and adversely affect kidneys and nerve damages. However, the obesity surgery is only affordable to certain sections of the society as it costs around Rs 3-4 lakhs. This high cost is because the staplers attached on the stomach after the surgery are very costly. With the rise in obesity and in order to look slim and attractive, weight loss surgery is a successful and healthy way to reduce weight and to get slimmer.
