Preparing for gastric sleeve surgery at Spire Elland

Getting here

Spire Elland Hospital is situated just two minutes’ drive from the M62 motorway. Public transport options are available. We have free on-site parking for you and your visitors.

Your consultations

When you come to your first appointment, you’ll have a chance to meet one of our team of bariatric specialists in one of our 13 private consultation rooms, all of which have easy access. During your consultation, your consultant will talk to you about your medical history. They’ll be able to explain:

  • The different options for surgery
  • What’s involved, including the anaesthetic and any risks or complications
  • The kind of tests you’ll need before your surgery

There’ll be plenty of time to discuss any questions or concerns. You might find it helpful to think of some questions beforehand and make notes during your consultation.

You’ll need to have a pre-operative assessment before your operation which may include:

  • An electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Blood tests
  • Endoscopy

Gastric sleeve surgery: your procedure

When you arrive on the day of your surgery, we’ll show you to your own private en-suite room where you’ll have access to all the facilities you’d expect, including:

  • TV/radio
  • En-suite
  • Window
  • Armchair
  • Wardrobe

You’ll meet your consultant, anaesthetist and the surgical team. Before the operation, you’ll be given a general anaesthetic and once ready, your consultant will carry out the surgery to remove part of your stomach.

The surgery usually takes one to two hours, but you’ll stay in hospital for up to two days after.

Your aftercare and recovery

After surgery, our nursing team will care for you and ensure you have adequate medication to help you deal with any discomfort from the surgery.

Once you leave hospital, we’ll have follow-up appointments with you one month, three months and six months after your operation to check on your recovery and progress. A dietitian will provide monthly support and is available over the phone should you need any advice or help outside of your consultations.
