  • Visited For Laparoscopic Appendicectomy

    Dr Sheth has enough experience to understand the health problem of patient and can suggest or advise proper treatment accordingly, and carry out the procedure safely.
  • Visited for a severe gall bladder and liver infection

    After my father fell ill, we came in contact with Dr Harsh Sheth. He attended to my father with immediacy and confidence. My father started with mild fever and very low saturation levels that had us very worried. Although his RT PCR test was negative, it was on Dr Harsh Sheth insistence that we admitted him in hospital since he wanted to monitor his saturation levels. Due to the early and correct diagnosis by the doctor, we found out that my father had gall bladder stones and a severe infection. Hence, the right diagnosis and immediate surgery saved my father. We are eternally grateful to Dr Harsh Sheth. In such challenging times, it is so important to have such a reassuring and helpful doctor. Today my father is here with us only because of him. We are grateful for his timely intervention.

If you find yourself struggling with one of the below-mentioned problems or both, you are eligible to undergo weight loss surgery:

  • BMI 35-40 (32.5-37.5 for Asians) kg/m2 with 2 or more obesity related co-morbidities
  • BMI more than 40 (37.5 for Asians) kg/m2 with or without obesity related co-morbidities
  • BMI 27.5-32.5 (for Asians) kg/m2 with severely uncontrolled diabetes mellitus (type II) despite best medical management
There is plenty of evidence that obesity improves quality of life for all obese individuals, due to resolution/remission of obesity related co-morbidities, and protects from obesity related cancers.
Bariatric surgery improves the overall quality of life. In addition to improved health and longevity, weight loss surgery has a positive impact on various physical functions such as mobility, flexibility, and sexual function. Alternatively, it also promotes emotional well-being through enhanced self-esteem and social interactions. As a result, it helps reduce stress and depression.
