My prime area of professional practice is bariatric and metabolic surgery to treat obesity and its co-morbid medical conditions. Bariatric surgery is the only scientifically proven safe and effective method for permanent weight loss and it also cures co-morbid medical conditions in significant number of patients. There is a general lack of awareness about the physiology of obesity and the reasons behind failure of diet control, exercise, low calorie diet products and liposuction to achieve permanent weight loss. I am interested in educating physicians, patients, general public about healthy diet, regular physical exercise to prevent obesity and bariatric surgery to treat obesity. I am interested in further research into the reasons why patients achieve permanent weight loss after bariatric surgery. Based on this we can develop non surgical methods to treat obesity which is beneficial to several obese individuals who doesn't come into the category of bariatric surgery.
