Common Procedures

Laparoscopic Gastric Banding (Lapband) Surgery

Obesity is a well-known risk factor of hypertension, diabetes, hypercholesterolaemia and heart disease, all of which lead to lower life expectancy and poorer quality of life.

Lapband Surgery is for the severely obese who have difficulty losing weight through dieting and exercise, or for the obese who have related medical problems.

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) Procedures in General Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS), or 'keyhole' surgery is a technique that allows surgery to be performed through small incisions (cuts). This lead to lesser pain and speedier recovery.
