In 2013, while working as a Leading Consultant Surgeon at Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah, Saudia Arabia, Dr. Tanvir was intrigued by a revolutionary procedure called Bariatric and Metabolic Operation. An operation that has the capacity to potentially cure diabetes and obesity. Seeing the significant impact the surgery has on the overall patient’s quality of life, Dr. Tanvir decided to dedicate his practice to the treatment and prevention of obesity as a full-time Bariatric Surgeon. On realizing the scarcity of this life-changing treatment in the healthcare system of Pakistan, he decided to pursue it and bring it home to Karachi.
Having extensive experience and training as a Laparoscopic Surgeon, he traveled to Egypt, Germany, and Sweden to nurture his skills and gain experience and knowledge of the intricacies of Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery.
Dr. Tanvir devoted twelve years in Ireland and the UK towards excelling in General, Colorectal, Breast Cancer, and Laparoscopic Surgery.
On his return to Pakistan in 2007 he served as a consultant surgeon at Indus Hospital where he established the Advanced Laparoscopic, Endocrine, and Cancer Surgery Department as well as the Postgraduate Surgical Training Program. In 2011, he was appointed as the Chief of Surgery at Patel Hospital in Karachi.
In 2013, he joined the prestigious Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he went on to perform more than 1000 successful surgeries.
In 2018, he returned to Karachi and started his Bariatric Surgery practice at South City Hospital, Clifton. In line with his aim to spread awareness and offer affordable treatments for obesity and related diseases, he established a private practice named Obesity and Diabetes Surgery (now named Doctor Obesity Clinic).
