If weight loss surgery is something you are considering, you can make an appointment to see a highly qualified and experienced weight loss surgeon at Spire Ilkley Clinic.
Your consultant will be able to confirm whether you would benefit from weight loss surgery and if so, which type of surgery would be most appropriate for you.
If you decide to go ahead, the surgery will take place at Spire Leeds Hospital in Roundhay, Leeds.
Spire Leeds Hospital has been offering safe and effective weight loss surgery for over 15 years.
More than 2000 patients, including some with a BMI (body mass index) as high as 100 - have benefited from having weight loss surgery at our hospital.
Weight loss surgery procedures provided at Spire Leeds include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric banding.
Another option for those who want to lose weight but don’t qualify or want surgery is the Orbera weight loss balloon. If you have a BMI of 27* or more, this procedure could be the ideal solution for you.
Research has shown that weight loss surgery can be more effective in the long term than weight loss drugs or diets.
Your weight loss surgery will be performed by one of our specialist weight loss surgeons in our clean, safe private hospital. Surgery is only part of the service - we also have a dedicated weight loss surgery support team including weight loss surgery specialist nurses, physiotherapists and dietitians.
Our dietitian, who has a wealth of experience in working with weight loss surgery patients, will help you to make the all-important lifestyle changes needed to get the full benefit from your weight loss surgery. You will be given on-going personal support whilst you follow the post-surgery diet and our dietitian will work with you to ensure you are making the right dietary choices and are receiving enough nutrients.
Spire Leeds also hosts regular meetings of the weight loss surgery patient support group.
We will provide you with advice and support throughout your weight loss journey - from your first appointment until long after your surgery has been completed.
