SCOD (Surgical Center For Obesity And Diabetes)
Obesity is a disease that affects 34 percent of adults age 20 and over in India.. Currently, almost 1 in 5 men and over 1 in 6 women are overweight. In some urban areas, the rates are as high as 40%. India is now in the grip of an obesity epidemic and the trend needs to be immediately arrested by taxing junk food, restricting food ads and making food labelling clearer, according to a study. New study released by the Registrar General of India indicates that obesity-related diseases have joined malnutrition as leading causes of death. If maintained, even weight losses as small as 10 percent of body weight can improve your health. Knowing the various reasons that people become obese can help you understand your own struggle more clearly.

This program is under mentorship of world-renowned bariatric surgeon from Australia, Dr. Laurent Layani.
Performing our surgeries at Jeewan Mala Hospital and Nova Specialty surgery we aim to provide superior outcomes with utmost patient safety. Our goal is, quite simply, to improve our patients’ lives By choosing this form of treatment for obesity the patient will now be able to loose more than 80% of its excess weight in the next 1 year.
We already have a first in our cap. India’s 1st CGHS approved Sleeve gastrectomy was successfully performed under SCOD. We at Jeewan Mala feel that it was about time that people start considering obesity as a disease rather than a social cause.
All the best !
