We at LivLife Hospitals understand that the road to successful weight loss is not very smooth or may not be easy… but we are here to help you at every step…




Bariatric Surgery Support Group

Bariatric support group brings together individuals who require information support prior to surgery and patients who discuss and share their experience after bariatric surgery.

LivLife Hospitals bariatric support group meet provides a common platform to discuss pre and post bariatric surgery concerns. Support group members can share post surgery experience, medical condition and experiences after bariatric surgery. Old patients, new patients and visitors can interact with other members through the group and learn more about obesity, health problems, and success stories of group members and understand their journey towards successful weight loss.

The team of Bariatric Specialists led by Dr Nandakishore Dukkipati, (Chief Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgeon) nutritionist, psychologist & physiotherapist will moderate and participate in the discussion. This is an informal meeting where you can feel free to discuss and interact with likeminded people. The group synergizes an inspiration to others who are/were struggling from the same conditions.

Let’s take inspiration from others who have achieved long term weightloss goals and clap for them.
