Spire Portsmouth weight loss surgery patient
Our team of highly trained surgeons, specialist nurses and experienced nutritionists are committed to working with you to achieve the best possible results. They will be there to provide care and support throughout your treatment and for two years after surgery to help you on your journey to a slimmer, healthier you.
Benefits of weight loss surgery
Research is continuing to confirm the benefits of weight loss surgery. Obesity related conditions like diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnoea (difficulty breathing whilst asleep) and arthritis can all be improved.
The potential benefits are not just medical, patients tell us that weight loss surgery has greatly improved their quality of life. It has given them the opportunity to do things they never thought possible, like playing with their children, taking part in sports, travelling to far flung places and buying normal size clothes.
