Dr Mohit Bhandari, Mohak Bariatric and Robotic Centre, Indore has successfully completed 53 bariatric operations in a marathon 13 hours, thereby submitting its claim to the Guinness Book of World Record.
Bariatric surgery which is performed to control obesity is a surgery full of risks and possible complications because most often, the obese patients in addition to obesity suffer from other ailments such as hypertension, diabetes, sleep apnea, asthma, heart diseases etc.
On May 1, 2019, Dr Mohit Bhandari and his team operated on patients not only from India (Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Jharkhand) but also from Bangladesh and Kenya.
These patients weighed between 100-182 kgs. As per the surgical need of the respective patient, various types of surgeries namely banded gastric bypass (15), banded mini gastric bypass (14) banded sleeve gastrectomy (24) were successfully performed. All these operations were telecast live internationally to other doctors and medical personnel.
Dr Mohit Bhandari said, “Obesity is a serious growing issue and not many people are able to manage it or cure its related ailments only with diet and exercise. We at Mohak Bariatric and Robotic Centre have adequate equipment, infrastructure and a dexterous team to perform these weight loss surgeries using minimally invasive techniques.”
