India is considered to be one among the most preferred destinations for medical treatments as it is very affordable compared to other destinations. People from all over the globe, including US, UK, Kenya, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, etc visit India and get their weight loss surgery performed in the Top Bariatric Hospitals in India.

Compared to other parts of the world, the cost of Bariatric surgery in India is very affordable. The cost is really worth it, when we compare the benefits that the surgery offers. Again depending on the weight loss procedure performed, the cost of the surgery varies.

All the years after my first delivery, I had been struggling to attain weight loss. I in fact tried all diets out there but nothing gave me long term results. I was diagnosed with High Blood Pressure , hypothyroidism metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome , acid reflux, heartburn, pre-diabetes, , migraines, sinuses, foot and knee pain.

At one point my weight had reached 115 kg and this was the time I decided that enough was enough and that I have to find a one time solution for weight loss.

I heard about Dr. R. Padmakumar from his online programs and decided to meet the doctor for a consultation. On the first meeting itself I could feel the positive vibe of Dr. Padmakumar and his passion for helping people change there life’s for the better. He is truly caring and explained everything in a way which clears any doubt that we might have. The whole team of keyhole clinic is friendly , knowledgble and supportive. They really made me feel comfortable and welcome.

After surgery my life has turned great and the only regret is not having done the surgery earlier. After one year of surgery I lost 40kg and feel healthier and younger and have gained so much more confidence. I feel the best looking at myself in the mirror again.

I am truly thankful and grateful to Dr.Padmakumar and the entire team at keyhole clinic for bringing back the biggest smile on my face.
