Prettislim Clinic has been ranked as No 1 Bariatric/ Slimming clinic in Mumbai, after an Extensive All India Lifestyle Hospital & Clinic Survey conducted in collaboration with i3 Research Consultants (i3RC).
Research Methodology The objective of this research was to arrive at a list of top lifestyle hospitals & clinics in India (for elective procedures/ treatments). The study had two major modules i.e. Perceptual Rating Survey & Factual Survey preceded by desk research to create & identify the broad list In the perceptual module, a structured questionnaire was administered among selected respondents to arrive at a ranking & rating of lifestyle hospitals & clinics in respective therapeutic areas viz Dialectology, Orthopedic, Bariatric, Trichology, Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, Dentistry & Ophthalmology. Each respondent was asked to give ratings for only those hospitals/ clinics that he/she was aware, Considering them as best at national and their zonal level (in their respective therapeutic areas) – 5 each hospital/ clinic respectively to avoid investigation fatigue to ensure quality data. A sample survey of 900 was conducted in select cities – Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh, Pune, & Lucknow There were two main respondent categories – those who are the experts in their therapeutic areas (Experts) and those who have undergone for elective procedures/ treatments (Active Users).

An extensive 6 weeks field work was conducted from beginning the 2nd week of May 2016
MODULE 1 | LISTING ELECTIVE LIFESTYLE TREATMENT HOSPITALS & CLINICS The module 1 was a secondary research module. A comprehensive list of elective lifestyle treatment hospitals & clinics were generated for Respective therapeutic area with the help of internet, magazines, etc The list was further refined to those list of hospitals & clinics which provides only elective procedures & treatment in respective treatment areas; Orthopedics procedures like joint replacements, etc.; Bariatric procedures like gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, etc. Trichology (excluding only hair transplants); Dermatology (excluding only cosmetic surgery); Aesthetic procedures like Plastic Surgery, Cosmetic Surgery, Reconstructive Surgery, etc., Dentistry procedures including Dental And Maxillofacial Implant Surgery; Ophthalmology procedures including protection, preservation, enhancement and restoration of vision.
MODULE 2 | PERCEPTUAL SURVEY A perception questionnaire was administered to respondents. The same also checked for awareness scores. Respondents were allowed to respond for those hospitals/ clinics only which were known to them. Respondents were provided a list of parameters to evaluate the hospitals/ clinics & rate on a scale of 1-10 where 1 was poor & 10 was excellent. The list of parameters to be covered in the survey was arrived at based on discussions with experts from the respective therapeutic areas – Dialectologists /Endocrinologists, Orthopedics, Bariatric Surgeons, Trichologists, Dermatologists & Plastic Surgeons, Cosmetic Surgeons, Dental specialists and Ophthalmologists. The following key parameters were covered in Perceptual Rating

MODULE 3 | FACTUAL DATA COLLECTION Around 600 lifestyle hospitals/ clinics were sent the factual data questionnaire and then rigorously followed up telephonically .The factual data sheet was focused on the following information areas:
Infrastructure / facilities
Modern day equipments available
Doctors / consultants / surgeon empanelment
Recognitions / certifications

Overall image / legacy
ANALYSIS: FINAL RANKINGS A robust approach was followed to arrive at the final rankings. The step by step process is given below:
Ratings on various parameters for each hospitals/ clinics
Calculating importance of various parameters to arrive at weights for each parameter – we used a regression model to arrive at the importance of various parameters
Calculation of raw scores and weighted scores for each parameter
Calculation of overall score for each hospital/ clinic using importance weightage.
The information collected corresponded to similar parameters as in the perceptual survey
A detailed scoring system was developed for each parameter
After assigning scores to each parameter, raw scores were calculated
The raw scores were weighted by their importance to arrive at weighted scores
The final hospital/ clinic score was calculated as in the perception survey
The final score for a hospital/ clinic was an average of Perception
Score and Factual Score – equal weightage was given to both
Best efforts were made to reach every hospital/clinic; however any hospital/ clinic that did not send complete “Fact-Sheet” within the allotted time was assigned an average Factual score for calculating their overall ranking
Any hospital/ clinic which expressly stated that it did not wish to participate in the survey was excluded from the survey
Sole hospital/ clinic within their allotted categories have not been ranked vide this survey
Hospitals established post 2014 and Clinics established post 2015 were considered under emerging category list
