Excess body weight can be a big hindrance to activities of the daily life. Not only can this lead to several medical conditions like heart diseases, blood pressure, sleep apnea, or cancer but also eventually leads to major disabilities or even death. Obesity is a result of a combination of several factors which may be hereditary, or the result of poor lifestyle, lack of activity/exercise, or hormonal imbalances.

When all efforts to diet, exercise or improve the diabetic condition fail, bariatric surgery must follow. At VAGUS, our eminent team of bariatric experts ensure a steady and healthy long term program with attention to quality, making the process of weight loss through surgery less painful. Studies have shown that the patients who continued to maintain successful weight loss, completely resolved type 2 diabetes in 78.1% of cases. Our skilled surgeons and experienced medical team ensure that in the long run, you lead a healthier lifestyle for a better future.

Our laparascopic surgery team uses minimally invasive procedures as opposed to open surgeries, as a means of reducing scarring, pain or risk of infections in benign and malignant problems. With a specialization in minimal access surgeries (MAS), our surgeons use smaller incisions and state of the art equipment while operating, resulting in faster recovery post-treatment. Less time spent in the hospital is an indicator of a quicker healing process and patients are back on their feet in no time.

It is a technologically sophisticated system with a special design that allows constant patient observation and timely intervention to prevent complications. The Dialysis Unit is made up of 28 dialysis stations, 22 hemodialysis and 6 peritoneal dialysis stations.
Dialysis is a life-saving procedure for patients whose kidneys are not working properly, in which excess water and waste products are removed from the body. In hemodialysis, blood is drawn out through a tube in the patient’s arm into a special machine which filters the blood and pumps it back into the body. This procedure can last several hours, during which a patient’s entire blood courses through the machine numerous times. In peritoneal dialysis, the space inside the abdomen called the ‘peritoneal cavity’ is used for dialysis.

Plastic surgery is not only cosmetic, but involves much more of reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, from breast reconstruction to craniomaxillofacial and microsurgery. The surgery engages redistribution and transfer of tissue from one part of the body to another and sometime from one person to another. Plastic Surgery stems from the Greek term PLASTIKOS meaning mould. This form of surgery requires innovation to enable enhancement in both function and appearance of a person changing their lives and re-establishing the lost confidence.

At VAGUS the team of expert specialists work on reconstructive surgery encompassing Fingers and Hand Reimplantations, Paediatric Thumb Reimplantation, Toe to Thumb Transfers and Brachial Plexus/Nerve Surgeries.
