Ruling on Surgeries that Involve Breaking Obligatory Fast

We are a medical team that does a large number of surgeries all-year. As a result, we can`t delay the already scheduled surgeries, which are more than a thousand, till after Ramadan under the excuse that patients are observing fast. In most scheduled cases, patients are forced to break their fast for a day or two until they return to normal. However, there is a new surgical procedure that we perform on patients suffering from "excessive obesity" where they are forced to break their fast and follow a diet for a minimum of three weeks. Is it permissible to perform this procedure in Ramadan?

If the Medication Harms the Patient, there is no Sin in Stopping it

My brother had heart surgery, which produced more severe disease symptoms: brain thromboses, lung failure, low platelets,  and internal hemorrhaging. Doctors told us that there isn`t likely to be significant progress, and his condition will be steadily worsening. They even suggested not to give him any new medications because they will cause more harm and further complicate his condition, and that it is better to keep him as he is. Should we agree to this?
