Endoscopic devices are definitely the most innovative and may represent the real future of the bariatric field, says Dr Rajat Goel, HOD, Bariatric Surgery, Primus Super Speciality Hospital, New Delhi
Technology is something that can change everything in such a way that can make work effective and efficient. It is basically an innovative idea that is converted into reality by proper execution.
Nowadays technology helps in boosting the healthcare industry. It helps to provide better facilities. Medicines being one important aspect can be better and can seek quick results. Minimally invasive approach can be a boon.
Imagine a situation where a patient has to wait for long hours standing in cues even if he/she is not in a condition to wait but since there is no option available they are bound to wait. So what’s important is to bring technology into play. An appointment can be booked through Internet, which can help the victim or patient to stay in a better surrounding rather than waiting into cues which can make condition worse for them.
We always see people waiting for their lab reports; they tend to visit hospitals again and again in order to collect details and information. Now technology here is easily helping them to save their time by sending reports over Internet. It can facilitate you in another way also where reports are sent to the doctors of other countries in order to discuss big issues, which will ultimately help to come to a conclusion about what treatment should be done and get access to minimal invasive techniques for surgery, robotic surgery where some difficult areas in body can be accessed by a robot etc.

With Internet access technology can reach all around the world. Also Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp are very easy tools to reach people.
All these social applications have made it is to stay connected to large number of people which was not possible earlier. Another important mass media access is radio and newspaper. Since radio is within the reach of most people it serves as a good medium of sending information and keep people updated. Now when we talk about newspapers, we know that it reaches most of the audience easily as compared to others media. Better software’s can help person searching on net easy access to technology. Media and mass awareness campaigns are very important.
Overdoing everything will lead to failure and make people think about integrity and honesty of information. At times questions are raised on the authenticity and credibility. So whatever media advertises should give correct information, screened by experts preventing false information about medicine. Last but not the least, cost is also very important factor, should be cheaper and save time and money. It is a team work, where the companies, doctors, media work in union to get the best results.
Endoscopic devices are definitely the most innovative and may represent the real future of the bariatric field. Besides, smaller innovations are also instrumental, like motorised staplers and robotic needle-holders.
