Weight loss surgery (also called bariatric or obesity surgery) is a long-term commitment and a lifelong change. For this reason, it’s vital you choose carefully where to have surgery, so you can be sure you’ll have the ongoing support you’ll need. At Spire Washington Hospital, we’re with you all the way.
Our weight loss patients benefit from our experienced team at the hospital which include: experienced surgeons specialising in bariatric surgery and procedures, trained nurses, physiotherapists and dietitians along with on-going, individually tailored support and advice programmes.
We will provide you with advice and support throughout your weight loss journey, from your first appointment until long after your surgery. Our dietitian, who is experienced in advising patients on making lifestyle changes, will help to guide you through your first year following surgery. At the end of the year you will have learned how to work with your choice of surgery to achieve optimum results.
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.
At Spire Washington Hospital we offer a comprehensive weight loss surgery service (sometimes called bariatric or obesity surgery) including: gastric bypass, gastric balloon, and sleeve gastrectomy
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.
Our patients tell us that weight loss surgery gives them the chance to do things they never thought possible. They have a renewed zest for life, with the energy and enthusiasm to play with their kids, play sports or go on a long haul holiday.
