KDAH Experience :

Dr. Palep joined us to start the unit for Weight Loss and Metabolic Surgery with Minimally Invasive Techniques (Robotic & Laparoscopic). There have been no mortalities and less than 1% of patients had significant morbidity related to the procedure in 4 years since the inception of the bariatric surgery program. More than 90% of his diabetic patients are now off Insulin & Oral Anti Diabetic Medications maintaining a healthy lifestyle with just diet and exercise.

This is the only center in western India offering robotic bariatric surgery since 4 years. His cases have been demonstrated live at various national and international conferences. In addition to bariatric surgery, Dr. Palep is well versed in performing advanced minimally invasive and robotic upper GI surgeries (Stomach, Duodenum, Spleen) and Biliopancreatic surgeries.

  • Dr. Simon N. Gicharu, Nairobi, Kenya

    I received the best care and am very confident that I am getting world class treatment. My comment to one nurse summarizes my experience - Other nurses in other countries need to come to India to learn the art of Nursing.
  • Gagan Arora, 38

    I am very satisfied with the surgery as it has shown very positive results. I was hypo thyroid with hormone levels 10 times higher than the normal range. Post surgery it has come back to normal and my medication has been reduced considerably.
  • Private Female

    Two years back I read an article on bariatric surgery and discussed the same with my family physician whether the same is applicable for me. My doctor suggested me to meet Dr Palep for an expert opinion. After meeting Dr Palep I was fully convinced that I can recover from this situation by undergoing a surgery as suggested by him.
  • Salim Ahmed Khan, Dubai

    The robotic gastric sleeve surgery was just so smooth n pain free must say that I am genuinely thankful for making a decision to be operated under you in KDAH.
  • Arpita Chaturvedi

    I got my bariatric surgery on 12th June 2013. My experience during the entire pre operation and post operation was very smooth. Dr. Jaydeep Palep was like a pillar and friend during the entire procedure.
