Choose to Lose Team
Our years of experience in the weight loss and bariatric surgery field, enabling patients to regain their lives, has led to the inception of Choose to Lose team. Our team comprises our expert bariatric and laparoscopic surgeon Dr. Rohit Kumar, associate surgeon Dr. Amna Bhatti and a stellar team comprising healthcare professionals ranging from physicians, dieticians, physical therapists, psychiatrists, and counselors. Losing weight is a choice you make for yourself, and our Choose to Lose team is with you every step you take towards weight loss.
We also evaluate an individual for comorbidities like diabetes, hypertension, metabolic issues like Polycystic ovarian disease, hypothyroidism, and others that may contribute to weight gain.
After highlighting the individual’s BMI and comorbidities, we make an individualized diet plan and keep them in a close loop for regular assessment at our hands. Individuals who fall into the moderate to severe obesity category (BODY MASS INDEX OF 35 AND HIGHER) are subjected to surgery for weight loss, where we provide them with the procedure that suits them the best.
We perform bariatric procedures that include sleeve gastrectomy, mini gastric bypass, gastric bypass, duodenal switch, and redo bariatric procedures.
Patients who do not wish to undergo surgery or fall into the category of grade 1 obesity can be prescribed FDA-approved injections for weight loss and tablets after a thorough evaluation of their hormonal balances. We also have an option for a gastric balloon, a non-invasive, non-sedating procedure to help an individual lose weight and maintain it.
A Gastric Balloon is a device that is placed into the stomach. The balloon is then filled with a saline solution and slowly inflated to stretch the stomach. This allows patients to eat less food and feel full more quickly. The balloon is removed once the patient has achieved their weight loss goals.
Our Choose to Lose is a program centered on managing weight wherein we support non-surgical programs focused on diet, exercise, medication, and surgical treatments. It is complete with weight maintenance programs focusing on healthy eating and lifestyle management. We suggest to our patient’s various exercise modalities that best suit their health condition and available time.
We also support essential tips to keep weight gain at bay with recipes that are easy to manage in any household with limited time and resources. Meet our team to lose weight and get your confidence back.
