Weight loss surgery including gatric banding available to patients at Spire Tunbridge Wells.

Losing weight can change and extend your life. We might be be able to help.

If you are very overweight, losing weight can change your life. Weight loss surgery (also known as obesity surgery or bariatric surgery) in the form of gastric banding may be the solution for you.

Our patients tell us that weight loss surgery gives them the chance to do things they never thought they could – play with their children, play sports or go on a long haul holiday. Research has shown that weight loss surgery works better than weight-loss drugs or diets. That’s why Spire Tunbridge Wells has a dedicated bariatric team providing support, surgery and follow-up care 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.

If you look at our weight loss surgery webpage there is a BMI calculator to help you calculate your Body Mass Index.

We also have a gastric band patient's diary, given to us by a patient where she describes her gastric band journey from initial consultation through to surgery and her post-operative experience. Read her story here.
