Shed the Weight with our Bariatric Surgery Programmes

Having performed hundreds of successful surgeries, our expert team confidently offers gold standard weight loss surgeries, tailored to your unique needs and goals.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces stomach size, limiting food intake and promoting long-term weight loss success.

Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass surgery is a highly effective method for weight loss, combining stomach size reduction with rerouting of the small intestine to promote healthy weight management.

Mini-Gastric Bypass

Mini-gastric bypass offers a less complex alternative to traditional gastric bypass, providing effective weight loss results with shorter recovery times.

Gastric Balloon

The gastric balloon procedure is a non-surgical, reversible option for weight loss, using an inflatable balloon to reduce stomach capacity and encourage healthier eating habits.

I'm interested in doing the surgery. What does the process look like?

The process begins with an initial consultation with your surgeon to discuss your needs and goals. Following this, you’ll undergo a gastroscopy to assess your stomach’s condition. Next, you’ll attend a pre-operative appointment to prepare for surgery. If needed, psychological and dietary consultations are scheduled to support your journey. Our comprehensive approach ensures a smooth and personalised experience from initial consultation to surgery.
