Dietary Modification

Customized diets to meet your needs

Low calorie diets (LCDs) are individually planned to include 500 to 1,000 calories a day less than you burn.
Very low calorie diets (VLCDs) typically limit intake to only 400 to 800 calories a day and feature high-protein, low-fat liquids.


Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery works by either limiting the stomach’s capacity for food or by bypassing the length of the small intestine to minimize nutrient absorption. A combination of both methods can also be applied to promote weight loss. Three common types of bariatric surgery performed at our bariatric unit are sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. All operations are performed laparoscopicaly with an overnight hospital stay.
