The biggest recent advancement in the medical world is Control of Diabetes (Type 2) by Laparoscopic (Key-hole) Surgery. A team of specialists from Hyderabad led by Dr Surendra Ugale is the first in India to have performed Ileal Transposition Surgery (small intestinal switch) for control and finally cure of diabetes.
Dr Ugale is the first Indian surgeon to have had the privilege of being trained by the world pioneer of this procedure, Dr Aureo de Paula of Brazil, to gain experience in Diabetic Surgery. Dr Aureo has been performing this surgery since 2003, and has presented his work internationally, showing excellent results.
The first surgery in India was performed on 18th Feb. 2008 at Kirloskar Hospital's Laparoscopic Surgery Centre, at Bashir Bagh, Hyderabad, on a 56-year-old lady.
The best of them all at one place
Aesthetic Plastic Surgeon
Hello readers! I am Swati Agarwal, a healthy 27 year old, based out of Kolkata. I was diagnosed with diabetes when eighteen; a regular, fun loving young girl. For obvious reasons, I had no knowledge about the severity of the disease, and the gravity of the situation.
It’s been 5 months since the surgery; I clearly remember everything from 5/7/2014. Life’s definitely changed from 140.8 kg to 108kg. Though I am not even half way through my target weight, but losing 32 kg in 5 months would have been a dream without you all.
I was 122 kgs suffering from acute sleep apnoea, my blood pressure used to hover around 180/120.. I could hardly walk 300 mtrs at a stretch, climbing up stairs was like a punishment. I could not sleep straight for almost 2.5 years, had to take refuge of a CPAP machine to get some sleep. The overall ailments started hampering my work, self confidence so on n so forth...
I am enjoying my life after undergoing the surgery. My sugar and blood pressure is normal after surgery. I also went on vacation to US after 6 months of surgery and had sky diving which I would not have even thought before undergoing this surgery.
At 94 kg body weight, life for me had literally come to a standstill! I would get tired even with the slightest of physical activity and climbing even one flight of stairs was simply out of the question.
