Bupa Cromwell Weight Management Centre offers a comprehensive multidisciplinary weight loss programme, which looks at lifestyle oprions, drug treatment and laparoscopic and open bariatric surgical options for weight loss including gastric banding, gastric bypass and sleeve gastroscopy.
At the Bupa Cromwell Hospital Weight Management Centre their philosophy is to help you achieve a healthy weight, using one of the many options available. They look at your individual circumstances and work together to help you lose excess weight. For some people, this will be through having bariatric (weight-loss) surgery. For others, it may be possible through lifestyle changes or drug treatment. Whichever option is right for you, they will provide exceptional care from a highly knowledgeable and experienced team.
Since bariatric treatment is associated with significant life changes, it is paramount that the mental wellbeing of all patients at the weight management centre is established prior to embarking on life-changing treatments. It is not uncommon for patients attending their clinic to suffer from eating disorders such as binging and nocturnal eating. In their experience, tackling these disorders is often the first step to inducing weight loss. In their endeavour to provide a holistic service, they offer every patient a comprehensive health assessment.
This means you can make sure you are aware of the different treatment options available, and you can also find out what it feels like to have bariatric surgery
, lifestyle treatment
or medical treatment
. The weight management centre's experience has shown that this approach leads to a significantly better patient outcome.
If you would like to arrange a personal consultation with a bariatric physician or surgeon, please call on 0800 169 1055 to make an appointment.
