A Message By Him

Namaste! People globally are getting morbidly obese due to their improper lifestyle, genetic and environmental factors. I have spent long enough time in USA working with such patients, did extensive research and invented new processes and products. I wish to replicate this success in India too- by transforming those overweight and obese lives.

The young Dr. Mohit Bhandari is the most successful bariatric surgeon in Asia Pacific and to him, my contribution would be to make a meaningful difference with the best of my knowledge and international experience.
