Center of Excellence in Surgery for the Treatment of Obesity, Songklanagarind Hospital, ready for universal standards

       The number of obesity patients in Thailand has been increasing in recent years, leading to various chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood lipids, cancer, dyspnea and sleep apnea, leading to loss of life.

     

       Recognizing the importance of addressing the rise of overweight and obesity, Songklanagarind Hospital has provided examination and surgery to more than 500 obese surgical patients over the last eight years. To better accommodate the increasing demand, the hospital established an obesity surgery center with a specialized expert team to provide care and comprehensive treatment for obese patients, extending the health coverage to all provinces in the south.

       Dr. Kamthorn Suriyanwong, MD., Doctor of Surgery, specialist for Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery, Songklanagarind Hospital, said that the mission of the Center of Excellence for the Treatment of Obesity is promotion, prevention and treatment through modified dietary behavior, medication, and laparoscopic surgery. The center also provides holistic and comprehensive care for complications or joint diseases caused by obesity, with the main goal to restore the patient's health and quality of life, not focusing on beauty treatment, the physician explained.

       Dr. Kamthorn has received positive feedback since treatment of obese patients has started. Patients lose approximately 30% of their initial weight on average, and their quality of life after surgery improves greatly. Patients are able to help themselves and their family, while existing disease symptoms improve as well.

       The hospital’s commitment to treating obesity, and the resulting Center of Excellence in the Treatment of Obesity (COE), have been founded on the royal philosophy "Our Soul is for the Benefit of Mankind”. The COE is now in the process of applying for universal standard certification by foreign institutions, in order to further increase the effectiveness of patient treatment. However, obesity is a behavior that needs to be controlled for a lifetime. Patients must keep a correct diet and exercise, changing daily lifestyle habits for better quality of life and to avoid relapse.
