Dr. Raman Goel - the man who revolutionized bariatric surgery in India.
In the 21st century, obesity has emerged as an epidemic in India. Today about 5% of our country’s population suffers from morbid obesity. Now to put this as a number, it is about 6.5 crore people. Obesity is constantly increasing, especially in India. India is the 5th most obese country in the world. Sedentary lifestyles, unhealthy foods, increasing addiction to smartphones and the internet are to be blamed for this.
Now obesity brings several complications like type-2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, certain cancers, fatty liver, etc. Obesity can be fatal as well. According to the Obesity Surgery Society of India (OSSI), any individual whose BMI is above 37.5 needs to consider a weight loss surgery. Individuals with a BMI of 32.5 or above but who are suffering from medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnoea, PCOD, osteo-arthritis and seriously impaired lifestyle need to consider bariatric surgery.

Ms. Shibani.S writes in the Dr. Raman Goel Review
that she holds two great men responsible for transforming her life. One of them is her husband and the other one is Dr. Raman Goel. She weighed 93kg before the weight loss surgery and now she weighs 73kg. Today she is diabetes, cholesterol and tension free!
According to Ms. Deepa, bariatric surgery was the magic she had always waited for ever since she was a child. Before getting bariatric surgery in Mumbai, weighed 87kg and today she weighs around 57 kg. Not only is she extremely grateful to Dr. Goel but also to the entire team of post operative care at Center for Metabolic Surgery. Dr. Goel was just a phone call away at all times and the support group she was a part of instilled positivity in her and helped her to gain back her self-esteem.
