Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery

We are proud to announce that KHUH  is the first hospital to be certified as the Centre Of Excellence for Bariatric And Metabolic Surgery in the Middle East.

Bariatric Surgery caters treatment to all categories of obese patients and their co-morbidities between the age group of 15-70 years.

Bariatric service at King Hamad University Hospital provides all kinds of bariatric surgeries such as Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Mini Gastric Bypass, Sleeve Gastrectomy with Transit Bi-partition and Bilio-Pancreatic Diversion.

At King Hamad University Hospital, Bariatric Surgery also deals with the complicated cases from other hospitals along with complicated and high risk patients within the hospital. We are currently receiving patients from all the gulf countries as well as Jordan, Egypt etc.

Body Mass Index(BMI), Hip Circumference and comorbidities are the key factors of evaluation defining the surgeon's decision.

BMI= (Weight/Height)2

A fully equipped bariatric operating room with paramount high definition equipment and well trained staff are an asset to this rapidly developing area of surgery.
