What is Obesity?

Obesity affects millions of people worldwide and occurs when a patient’s body weight is in excess of the healthy range in relation to their height. This results in high levels of body fat. This long-term obesity can be caused by several factors that generally includes lack of exercise and poor diet. The effects of clinical obesity and weight gain on your physical and mental health can be quite severe and some of the symptoms include lower back pain, fatigue, heavy sweating, joint pain, shortness of breath and sleep apnoea.

One of the commonly used methods for categorising a patient’s weight is The Body Mass Index or BMI. It is calculated by measuring your height and weight. If obesity is left untreated it can cause a range of serious health issues like arthritis, coronary heart disease, hypertension, menstrual irregularity, high blood pressure and stroke among others. We have a number of both surgical and non-surgical obesity treatments available for those who are seriously considering weight loss care.

Surgical Obesity Options

We offer prospective patients a comprehensive range of weight loss surgeries. Each surgery is used after careful consideration of the patient’s needs and which one would best serve them. Dr Dolan is able to expertly perform adjustable lap band surgery, SIPS surgery, gastric bypass surgery, mini gastric bypass surgery and gastric sleeve surgery along with the option for revision or failed weight loss surgery.

Whichever treatment you and Dr Dolan decide to proceed with, you will always be educated and kept informed every step of the way and all of your concerns and queries will be addressed personally by Dr Dolan.
