It will seem unbelievable but it’s true! Mohak Bariatric and Robotic Centre, Indore has successfully completed 53 bariatric operations in a marathon 13 hours.

The company has submitted its claim to the Guinness Book of World Record.

Bariatric surgery is performed to control obesity. It 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.

Dr. Mohit Bhandari and his team, on May 1, operated patients not only from India (Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Jharkhand) but also from Bangladesh and Kenya.

Dr. Mohit Bhandari led the team, which conducted operations.

As says Bhandari, “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.”

The patients weighed between 100 to 182 kgs.

The surgeries namely Banded Gastric Bypass (15), Banded Mini Gastric Bypass (14) Banded Sleeve Gastrectomy (24) were performed as per needs of the patients.
