Obesity has come up in a big way resulting into constellation of metabolic abnormalities affecting mainly the productive age group resulting into loss of productivity of an individual as well as their nation. The conservative methods of treating obesity have been proved transient and unsatisfactory. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG) results in long-term success in most of the morbidly obese patients. In the study conducted in the department of Surgery at ABVIMS & DR. RML Hospital, New Delhi on morbidly obese patients between November 2017 to March 2019, LSG resulted in significant weight reduction as well as control of the BMI. The effect of LSG in controlling weight as well as Body Mass Index (BMI) is more in the patients of BMI with <40 BMI as compared to patients of BMI>40.
