In collaboration with China Medical University, Yuan General Hospital is proud to offer our patients the medical services of the renowned Body Science & Metabolic Disorders International (BMI). This BMI Center offers an array of services, surgeries, and programs to help you lose and maintain an ideal weight. The dedicated multidisciplinary team approach helps make weight loss easier for patients who struggle with hard to lose weight, sluggish metabolisms, and weight gain due to medications and medical conditions.
We offer both surgical and non-surgical programs such as diet counseling, exercise counseling, and stress management, which will help individuals suppress the kind of fat storing hormones stress activates.
For patients with a BMI higher than 35, weight loss surgery might be recommended.
This is the most common surgery that many morbidly obese stars have performed. It has a highly effective rate for treating obesity, managing appetite, and has an extremely short recovery time and high success rate.
Laparoscopic Bariatric Surgery is safe and highly effective, with patients often experiencing a complete revolution in body composition, with typical weight loss equaling 30-45% of body weight in 2 years.
Not only is body composition improved but health as well, with many patients able to overcome conditions such as insulin resistance, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnea, and hypertension.
The lap band, also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, is a surgical procedure that involves banding the upper portion of the stomach off, to trim appetite, food consumed, and calories absorbed.
Unlike the sleeve gastrectomy and the gastric bypass procedures, this procedure is temporary and does not permanently alter the stomach. Still, the results are highly effective.
