It is one of the most often performed weight loss surgeries in the world. Gastric Sleeve returns your stomach to its normal size after being enlarged by years of previous eating habits.
Gastric Bypass is one of the most effective weight loss procedures. Weight loss is achieved by restricting the amount of food ingested and reducing the absorption of the calories from the food you eat.
We invite you to explore our interactive sessions with the doctor (‘Lifestyle Coaching’), which focus on the correction of poor eating habits to create a new healthier lifestyle.

Holistic Living has been completely transformational in my life, both physically and emotionally. My “Gastric Sleeve” has improved my self confidence and motivation and I have a very positive image of myself. My whole family and I are all very happy.
Getting surgery was the best decision I’ve ever made, and it was worth every shilling! I can’t believe how amazing I felt the days after surgery, and the two years following it. I feel 30 years younger and am at the prime of my life! I can walk the whole of Uhuru Highway without pain or getting out of breath. Dr. Shchukina is only a call or email away and is very prompt with her help and response.
I had the Gastric Sleeve procedure and in one month the change in my weight was tremendous. I had diabetes type 1 and hypertension. I was on a high dose of insulin, 3 times a day and anti hypertensive medications.
In four months’ time I had lost 34kg and have stopped taking insulin and blood pressure medications. I feel fantastic and am loving life! I would recommend this surgery to whoever has struggled with their weight for a long time. I completely trust Dr. Shchukin. He is very professional and I see how much Holistic Living strives for quality in their procedures. I’m so happy they brought this to Kenya! It has saved me a lot of money and headache. I have never been so happy.
I had always been quite big, even from an early age. In school, I was constantly bullied and made fun of because of my size. I heard about weight-loss surgery and the huge benefits that came from it, but it was only offered in India, Europe and America, and my parents did not want me to travel alone. When I found out that Holistic Living was doing the same procedures done overseas at a lower cost, I was so happy!! I convinced my parents and got the Gastric Bypass. I was 135kgs and now, one year later, I am 65kgs and have never felt more beautiful or healthy. I am infinitely thankful to Dr. Vladimir and Lyudmila Shchukin for all their support and wonderful work.
This has changed my life and I feel like I am finally living.
I had the Gastric Band done. It was completely painless and I got back to work in less than a week. I lost over 30kg within the first 5 months. I’m very satisfied.
My weight was 125 kg. I considered myself healthy, my only complaint was that I felt heavy. I had the Gastric Bypass procedure and now my weight is 75 kg and I feel very good. My son is a student in England, and he is severely obese at 130 kg. I told him clearly that I am taking him for the same procedure that I went through. He must understand that this is the disease that shortens life.
I was planning to go to India to have the Gastric Balloon procedure. I found out that Dr. V. Shchukin does the same procedure in Nairobi Hospital. I had the Gastric Balloon put in one year ago and have lost 25 kilos. It was removed after six months.
I want to put the Gastric Balloon again because I still need to lose 30 kilos. I am very happy with the progress, but am extremely determined to get to my ideal normal weight so I will get it again.
2006, 12 years old: I was never able to lose my weight, and since I started Medical weight loss it had helped me a lot. I am grateful to Holistic Living for helping me.
11th April, 2012: Hello Dr. Shchukina, I am so sorry that it has been so long since I last talked to you but I’ve been so busy with school. I just wanted to thank you for helping me with my weight problem. I am now perfectly fit and well shaped all thanks to you. I hope I can serve as an example to all those out there suffering because of their weight. I now weigh 58 kg and feel great. Here is a picture of me of late.
Thank you for all your help. With love, Faith”.
I tried many different methods for weight loss (in America, Canada, South Africa, Kenya) but my extra weight did not go. Since childhood my self-esteem was really low, in school children called me different names, and it was embarrassing for me to be obese and to hear those comments.
I started Medical weight loss in 2004 and within the few days I felt that I was already losing weight. I lost 25 kg and am comfortably maintaining the result for 3 years. I am very grateful to Dr. L. Shchukina. My life has completely changed.
I was diabetic and on insulin with 120 units a day. My weight was 140 kg and despite the high dose of insulin, my blood sugar was still high. My brother is a doctor and he said that without weight loss I wouldn’t be able to improve my health. I was also on a high dose of blood pressure medications. With my severe obesity, my only treatment option was bariatric surgery.
I did the gastric sleeve procedure and now I am 50 kg down. I am off insulin completely, I do not take any more diabetic or blood pressure medications, because my blood sugar is perfectly normal.”
