Providing you with an exemplary weight loss surgery service, supporting you on your journey to a slimmer and healthier you

Weight Loss Surgery | Wirral and Chester

We provide a comprehensive weight loss surgery service including laparoscopic (keyhole) procedures, gastric banding, gastric bypass and all types of revision (redo) surgery, carried out by our expert consultant surgeons.

Adjustable gastric banding procedure
Gastric banding is an effective weight loss surgery procedure used to help suitable people achieve significant and long-term weight loss.

Gastric bypass procedure 
Gastric bypass, also known as the Roux en Y gastric bypass, is the most widely performed bariatric procedure in the US. It is available as a keyhole procedure.

Are you eligible for surgery?
The upper limit for a healthy body mass index (BMI) is 25. If your BMI goes over 40, your risk of health problems associated with obesity increases significantly. At this point you would become a potential candidate for weight loss surgery.

People would also be considered if they had BMI of 35+ with co-morbidities if they would benefit from surgery. If your BMI is less than 35, there are still non-surgical treatments available to help you lose weight.

If you carry excess weight then losing weight can help to change your life. Our patients tell us that weight-loss surgery gives them the chance to do things they never thought possible. They have renewed zest for life with the energy and enthusiasm to play with their kids, play sports or even the confidence to go on a beach holiday.
