Kim Pepi Richard

My son had a gastric sleeve in Delhi last September 2017. A year later my son is a different young man. Our reason for traveling from Australia was his age is 14. You saved my son's life and I will be forever grateful for that, the care and service were immaculate. yes, it can be a culture shock, in another country. But it, not any less of what we would have received here.

Thank You.

Bec Morgan

Dr. Ruchika in India delivered efficient and professional service from the outset, matching up my weight and health concerns with the most amazing surgeon at the Apollo Spectra hospital in New Delhi, who made good all the promises that had been made, and MORE. All arrangements were executed seamlessly. Very glad I found them and will certainly be using them again, should the need arise.

One thing that stood out for me, as long as the hospital and the service in the US were compared to the hospital here, it's better here. And working with IndiCure was that the service was amazing!"

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Bariatric Surgery? How does it work?

Bariatric surgery also known as weight loss surgery refers to the surgical procedure which changes the digestive mechanism of the body so as to limit the food intake or absorption of nutrients by the body, resulting in weight loss. They are referred to as restrictive or malabsorptive procedures.

Restrictive procedures are Intra gastric ballooning, Lap Band, and Sleeve gastrectomy. They limit the amount of food that the stomach can hold but do not interfere with the body's normal digestion. Malabsorptive procedures like Gastric bypass and mini-gastric bypass, bypass the small intestine so that fewer calories are absorbed by the body.

2. How much weight can I lose with Bariatric surgery?

The amount of weight loss is quite individualistic and depends on the procedure and the individual. With a lap band, you can expect to lose between 50-60 percent of the excess weight over a period of 2-3 years, while with Gastric bypass, you can lose up to 80 percent of the excess body weight in one to two years. A regain of up to 10 percent of your excess body weight is common. Your goal weight would be set by you and the surgeon determined by your height, lifestyle, and other things.

3. Am I a Candidate for Bariatric Surgery?

You are a good candidate for bariatric surgery if:

  • Your BMI (Body Mass Index)is above 40 or between 30 to 40 and you have other associated diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, or painful joint condition arthritis
  • You are Obese for more than five years
  • You do not have glandular diseases such as hypothyroidism
  • Are not suffering from depression or other major emotional disorder

People with an inflammatory disease, severe heart or lung disease, esophageal, stomach or intestinal problems, cirrhosis, or who are pregnant are not candidates.

You responded to my all concerns within 24 hours; you reassured me everything would be okay when I needed it the most; you showed compassion that I have never seen before.

  • The IndiCure folks (Jagruti) hooked me up with THE BEST doctors for my heart issues. Period. The Physicians were thorough, professional, fast, proficient and affordable. Dealing with Indicure was super easy, super fast and a very pleasant experience. I HIGHLY recommend this process for those with no insurance or those who cannot afford the 20% co-pay for expensive procedures. Check the cost against prices in the USA folks.
