We recognize that severe obesity is a complex, chronic disease that has many causes and no simple solution. Although it is often perceived as a cosmetic problem, obesity is associated with many serious health conditions. That is why we have built the only program in Kuwait that provides a holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to obesity, incorporating a broad range of medical and surgical services. Our physicians evaluate each patient and provide the individualized care that is crucial to effective and long-lasting treatment success. This unique, comprehensive weight loss program addresses the medical, behavioral, nutritional, and, when necessary, surgical issues related to obesity. As our multi-disciplinary team is focused on promoting the health of our patients, design comprehensive individualized programs for each patient taking into consideration the patient’s age, gender, co-morbidities, life style and habits.

Detailed assessment starts with thorough interviews and questionnaires administered by highly trained physicians, dieticians, surgeons and psychologists. This is further followed up with detailed education through informational material ranging from lectures to video seminars and brochures. Treatment planning addresses weight loss, relief from co-morbidities, minimizing nutritional drawbacks and ensuring healthy appearance including the provision of post weight loss body contouring and sculpting plastic surgery. Our physicians have led the way in developing techniques for minimally invasive bariatric surgery. The bariatric surgical team specializes in laparoscopic bariatric surgery which has been performed for more than 20 years and has been Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved since 2001.

Laparoscopic surgery generally involves smaller incisions, less pain, a shorter hospital stay, fewer infections and faster recovery times for patients. Our team provides 5 different types of procedures that are matched to patient profile and needs, all as one day surgical procedures. Each patient is followed for a minimum of 5 years and results have been above the international benchmark. At the time of completing the program, the patient is expected to have reached desired weight, trained to learn how to control his weight and provided with healthy life habits.

Our expert team of doctors, dieticians and mental health professionals can help you implement the lifestyle changes necessary to achieve sustainable weight loss, enabling you to improve your health.
