It helps to improve or resolve more than 40 obesity-related diseases and conditions, including type-2 diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, sleep apnea, GERD, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and joint problems.

The best surgeon and center should have least recurrence rate (less than 1%) and infection rate. This has been successfully achieved at GLENEAGLES GLOBAL HOSPITALS.
