184-kg patient undergoes successful surgery in Al-Baha
A medical team at King Fahd Hospital in Baha has successfully operated on a 19-year-old obese patient of 184 kgs, finally ending his suffering from the days of his childhood.
The patient, who has now been discharged, was earlier unable to move, with his condition worsening to the extent that he could not even stand up.
The patient’s body fat exceeded 61 percent, which was high and posed a health risk to the patient. After initial tests, it was decided to perform a laparoscopic procedure of “quantification of the stomach.”
The Center for Surgical Treatment of Obesity and Obesity Diseases in Al-Baha is equipped with modern medical equipment and is run by highly qualified national cadres. The Center has treated more than 3,000 obese patients.
