Surgical approaches to the treatment of obesity have been transformed during the last decade or so, largely due to developments in laparoscopic (keyhole) techniques and anaesthetics. If you have a serious weight problem and you have exhausted all other approaches, it may be time for you to consider weight loss surgery as part of your weight management programme.
Obesity surgery can reduce or even entirely eliminate health risks for major disease such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke and can add enormously to the quality of your life through improved mobility, self confidence and self-esteem.
Healthier Weight take an approach to obesity surgery and weight loss that is medically led and based upon the best available scientific evidence.
Surgery is undertaken in some of the UK’s leading private hospitals with all the sophisticated support you would expect from modern healthcare facilities.
Options for obesity surgery in the UK
Healthier Weight offer several surgical options:
Gastric bypass surgery
There are several varieties of bypass, but all involve the creation of a small stomach pouch to restrict food intake and construction of bypasses of the duodenum and other segments of the small intestine to cause malabsorption (decreased ability to absorb calories and nutrients from food).
