Our weight loss surgery aftercare

After your operation, Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital's expert weight loss team will continue to support you during your first couple of years as you make your permanent lifestyle changes.

Here's an outline of how our team will support you during your weight loss surgery journey.

Our aftercare package includes:

  • Two-year full follow up aftercare
    This includes regular meetings with your consultant surgeon, consultant radiologist for X-ray band adjustments, your dietitian and bariatric nurse, who will monitor your progress and be on hand for any support or guidance you may require
  • Full access to the 24 hour emergency helpline
    In the event that you may have any concerns about the treatment you have received and you need to contact us outside office hours, there will be someone at the end of the phone, 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • Unlimited band fills if you have had a gastric band procedure
    Your first three band fills will always be carried out under X-ray control to achieve maximum accuracy, but during the second year we are happy to offer you unlimited band fills with your surgeon so you don’t have to worry about making any extra payments.
  • The highest level of care
    Your fixed price will cover you for everything in the first two years. Even if you need to be monitored on our high dependency unit (HDU), you will not be charged extra for this level of care.
  • Life-time membership to our support group
    With a life-time membership to our support group, there is no need to feel alone or isolated, with members of staff and peers surrounding you, you will receive support and guidance for life.

Advantages of adjusting your gastric band under x-ray control:

  • Accurate assessment of the position of the band following surgery
  • Reduced need for frequent band adjustments
  • Reduced complication rate during band adjustment
  • Accurate assessment of the effect of the band on the passage of material through the oesophagus in the stomach
  • Each band fill is tailored specifically based on the effect of the passage of the barium contrast
  • Improved likelihood of balancing the need for weight loss without excessive hold up of swallowing
