Bariatric Surgery (in Punjab) is a fast expanding field of surgery that helps obese people lose weight. The word Bariatric comes from a greek word “baros,” meaning “weight,” and “iatrikos,” meaning “medicine“. It has been around for over 50 years but has gained wide popularity after it became possible to perform it laparoscopically. This means that there is no need to make big cuts on abdomen to perform surgery as in old days. Everything can be done through small holes.
