I had been struggling with my obesity all my life. I would lose weight; gain it all back and more. After the third attempt at losing weight and failing, I decided to look into bariatric surgery and was really amazed to know the benefits. I had developed sleep apnea in my early twenty’s. Then as I got older, I developed hypertension, hypothyroidism and borderline diabetes. i decided to meet Dr.Kapil Agrawal again as he had removed my gallbladder a couple years ago and I was very impressed with how easy it went.
I underwent bariatric surgery in feb 2015 and i began to experience its benefit in a couple of weeks time. My energy and stamina levels began to increase and i could walk for 3-4 kms continously. After losing 35 kgs ,today I weight only 64 kgs and the journey of my weight loss has been very smooth and with the continous supervision and guidance of his team , i feel my life completely transformed. My constant problem of joint pains, high blood pressure and sleep apnoea have completely disappeared . I would like to extend my thanks to Dr.Kapil Agrawal and his team for giving me a new lease of life and would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in bariatric surgery or looking for a laparoscopic surgeon.
Fantastic doctor! I had inguinal hernia, which required surgery. After researching the options, I decided to go with laparoscopy. During the consultation visit with Dr. Agrawal, I found him very professional, competent, calm, warm, and pleasant. I liked him and decided to go with the laparoscopic surgery. His office assistant was also nice and competent. MY surgery went off very well and I was discharged from hospital very next day.To my surprise, the next day , I felt well and did not take any pain killers of any kind. The third day was even better, I went out. I went to work part time on the fourth day and on fifth day I was almost back to normal.
Aesthetically, The operation left hardly any scars as I had only 3 small holes below my navel. Dr.Agrawal performed an outstanding surgery, and I am very delighted. Highly recommend

Undergoing bariatric surgery has completely transformed my life. I was 137 kg and I used to sleep anytime even while sitting on chair..doctors told me I was having OSA and asked for weight reduction..I was not able to exercise and when no option was left in Nepal, my doctor in Nepal referred to Dr. Kapil agrawal. I met him and decided to undergo weight loss surgery ..I got operated in October 2015 and now I weigh only 75 kg..my breathing problems, OSA everything vanished .i feel energetic and so happy to get a new life.
I came to know about my gall bladder stones when I was investigated for recurrent bouts of abdominal pain in upper abdomen. some one referred me to Dr. Kapil Agrawal as he too was operated by him. Dr. Agrawal decided to perform single hole laparoscopic surgery against the conventional 4 port or hole surgery. I was amazed to see the results post surgery. I had a single hole and that too was invisible as it was just inside my navel. The post operative pain was almost negligible and i was able to join my duties on fourth day. I would like to recommend Dr. Agrawal for his excellent skills and would also like to thank Dr. Charu Khanna for her excellent diet care post operatively. My best wishes to doctor and his team.
A few weeks before my 63th birthday, I began to experience severe back pain for which I had to undergo spine surgery. the spine surgeon told me I need to get my weight reduced in order to prolong the life of my spine. I had a BMI of 46 and the doctor advised me to undergo bariatric surgery. he recommended me the name of Dr.Kapil Agrawal and I decided to meet him.
We had an extensive pre-op conference, in which he explained very clearly how he would approach a solution to my problem. He answered all my questions (and those of my wife, who asks plenty!) following which, I had a long conversation with dietician, in which I was counselled about my diet and exercise following surgery.
I underwent surgery about 5 months back. He performed sleeve gastrectomy. I had three small cuts on my abdomen and underwent sleeve gastrectomy. I was discharged on the next day of surgery and the speed and extent of recuperation at home has amazed my friends and family.
I had lost about 24 kg of weight in 4 months and the weight loss is still going on. My back feels much better and now I am able to walk at least 3 miles at a stretch.
I was so happy with the results that I even got my daughter operated whose BMI was 48 and she weighs 124kg at the age of 28. Her recovery was similar to mine and she too has lost weight of about 20 kg in 2 months.
Not only does Dr. Kapil Agrawal have exceptional skill (with a sterling reputation among his peers and patients), but he has an uncommon level of humane interest in the people who need his services. At his daily visits to the hospital, he was informative and encouraging, and spent a generous amount of his time. I am very grateful to this man, and I suggest you consider meeting him if you ever find yourself needing an extraordinary surgeon in the Laparoscopic and Bariatric specialties.
