Hospital Departments : Obesity Clinic
Obesity, declared as a disease by WHO, is rapidly becoming one of the greatest Health Challenges of the 21st Century. To spread awareness and manage this health hazard, VPIMS has taken a lead in establishing a comprehensive obesity management programme which requires the joint involvement of various disciplines like medicines, bariatric surgery, cosmetic surgery, nutrition, and physiotherapy – all available at the Institute. The Obese people would be screened, assessed and advised regarding their diet and exercise including Yogasans (Postures). Weight loss surgery would be offered in specific cases. After the weight loss programme, contouring of the body would be done with the help of liposuction & other body contouring procedures managed by Plastic, Cosmetic & Micro-vascular surgery.
