Italian Doctors To Operate On World's Fattest Man

40-year-old Manuel Uribe Garza, who weighs 550 kilos (1211.5 pounds) is to have a fat removal surgery in Italy. Garza is believed to be the fattest man in the world.// The Mexican is no longer able to move around and doctors say he is suffering from morbid obesity.

"We will hold a meeting in the coming days to work out the details of the hospitalization and to prepare the operating theater and the appropriate surgical tools," Head doctor Giancarlo DeBernardinis told the AFP. DeBernardinis visited his heavy patient in March this year and will again go to Mexico before giving the surgery a final thumbs-up. Garza has received a lot of dietary treatment, but despite that his condition remains the same. That is why his Italian doctor said that "in cases such as this one, there is no alternative but to operate." The main procedure will be to create "a series of short-circuits" in Uribe Garza's intestines, DeBernardinis said. This means that only 10 percent of whatever Garza eats will be absorbed.

"In two years, Uribe should have lost a substantial portion of his 550 kilos," he said.
