Welcome to CODS, the Centre for Obesity and Digestive Surgery that offers patients suffering from almost any gastrointestinal disease – a second chance at life. Since our inception in 2004, we have helped thousands of patients return to a normal life by using cutting edge technology and holistic care. CODS is the vision of Priyanka Kaul Lakdawala, who founded it along with Dr. Muffazal Lakdawala - one of the most recognized names in healthcare. Today, we are also known as India's and Asia's best centre for GI surgeries performed laparoscopically and through Single Incision (SILS).
Keeping up with the rapid changes in the field of surgical healthcare we've shunned the traditional approach of performing open surgery and instead opted for the laparoscopic and single incision approach. This has proven to be beneficial to our patients in the long run.
Our team performs close to 550 - 600 bariatric / weight loss procedures a year whilst Dr. Lakdawala has performed more than 10,000 surgeries in his career so far. Which is why most of our patients are satisfied with the results and we have a very low complication rate.
Customised equipment adhering to international standards ensures that all our patients are always well looked after. Whilst state-of-the-art technology and equipment ensures our surgeons have everything they need to perform to their optimum.
To ensure a trouble-free experience for all our patients we follow international guidelines for all processes and protocols. This includes nursing, consent forms, onsite availability of critical care specialists in the event of an emergency, and systems for both care and follow-ups.
A holistic approach in treatment ensures patients recover faster and without adjustment issues. Which is why every case is looked at simultaneously by nutritionists, physicians, endocrinologists (if needed), surgeons and psychologists.
