We offer various weight loss treatments. These include operations to reduce the size of your stomach through surgery or you can swallow tiny balloons that inflate to make you feel full after a small meal.
Being overweight or obese can have serious impact on both your physical and mental wellbeing. It can negatively affect your self-confidence and self-esteem and put you at increased risk for serious health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease. If you're still struggling to lose weight even after dieting and exercising, these types of treatments can help give you the extra boost you and your health need to help shed significant amounts of weight. We can help you choose the treatment that’s right for you, helping to give you the energy and self-confidence to enjoy a healthy life. And it's also been found that weight loss surgery really does help.
Every year we transform the lives of more than 2,000 people who choose to have weight loss treatment with us. Our expert bariatric surgeons offer a range of obesity surgery procedures including gastric banding (gastric band), also known as lap banding, gastric bypass and gastric balloon insertion. We also offer sleeve gastrectomy and duodenal switch operations. Regardless of which weight loss treatment you have, dedicated before and after care teams look after you throughout your weight loss journey, from making that first decision, to providing ongoing weight loss support and advice long after surgery. Our weight loss surgery teams are headed up by consultant bariatric surgeons, all registered with the General Medical Council, and include specialist weight loss surgery nurses, physicians and dieticians. There’s no waiting time for treatment and we offer payment options that help put weight loss procedures within your reach.
