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
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.
