Why do we provide obesity surgery?

A quarter of women and a fifth of men in the UK are now so overweight that their health is seriously at risk. British women head the EU league with 23% being clinically obese. Men fare little better with 22.3% classified as obese.

The simple fact is that weight loss is a serious issue affecting so many of us that it is reaching epidemic proportions. The good news is that you can take steps to positively influence your situation. At Spire Yale Hospital we will support you at every stage of your journey.

Taster session 2014

The Bariatric Patient Support Group chef and his team kindly prepared a menu of healthy snack products with less than 200 K/cal per portion. The food was well received and gave a few good ideas about healthy choices. The recipes are available here:

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 obesity 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 obesity 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.
