Metabolic

At last, obesity is considered a disease all over the world. Obesity and metabolic diseases go usually hand in hand. The increase in weight is usually a burden on all organ systems in the body, including the complex metabolic system. It is a special interest of endocrinologists, bariatricians, and bariatric surgeons.

The recent success of Bariatric Surgery in abolishing metabolic diseases, especially the bypass operations, has opened up a wide scale of research on how these procedures work, and what are the metabolic changes associated with it. It is also a special interest of GBMC and Jordan Hospital, carrying the prospective longitudinal study of their own patient population.
