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.
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.
