Weight Loss Surgery

In the UK, the level of obesity has trebled in the past twenty years. Norfolk may be considered a rural and healthy lifestyle choice so you would be forgiven for thinking that we may be contributing far less to these worrying national statistics. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Losing weight can change and extend your life.

Weight loss surgery at Spire Norwich Hospital

Spire Norwich Hospital has a dedicated bariatric team with over 10 years experience of providing support, surgery and follow-up for patients who have opted for surgery. The number of patients choosing laparoscopic gastric banding has increased substantially in recent years. This minimally invasive ‘keyhole’ technique compares favourably with weight loss achieved from a gastric bypass. Suitable patients who make full use of the local aftercare and support network may benefit from weight loss as good, if not better, than from more invasive surgery. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is generally safe; in fact, its complication rates are comparable to those of a routine gallbladder operation.

If you are overweight, losing weight can change your life. Weight-loss surgery (also known as obesity surgery or bariatric surgery) in the form of gastric bypass or gastric banding or may be the solution for you. Spire Norwich Hospital offers safe and effective weight-loss surgery, for more details please contact us on 01603 255 614 or complete our enquiry form on the right-hand side of this page.
