11-Mar-2017

Mumbai's doctors pulled off a world record on March 7th. The most eagerly awaited surgery on Egyptian national Eman Ahmed Abdulati, 36, touted to be the world's heaviest woman at 500 kg, finally took place. Leading bariatric surgeon Dr Muffazal Lakdawala and his team performed a Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) on Eman, who was already a 100 kg lighter at the time thanks to a strict liquid diet regimen, at Charni Road's Saifee Hospital. The operation will limit her consumption of food that will help her lose close to 150 kg in a year and a half. She currently weighs 350 kgs. Doctors said the surgery went off without a hitch.
