The gastric band, also known as the lap band, is our most popular weight loss surgery procedure.
The gastric bypass is an incredibly effective procedure, suitable for severely obese patients.
The gastric sleeve procedure removes a large part of the stomach, vastly reducing its capacity.
The gastric balloon is a short term, non-surgical, weight loss programme.

Evidence suggests that obesity is on the rise with 1 in 4 adults now obese but at The Hospital Group we are helping to reduce those figures with a combination of weight loss surgery and support – with some astounding weight loss results!
Our patients SUCCEED due to our excellent bariatric surgeons, weight loss surgery aftercare and expert weight loss specialist dietician support.

Weight loss surgery may be considered if you have a BMI of 30+, with or without co-morbidities such as Diabetes, Cardiovascular disease or if you have struggled with your weight for many years. The various weight loss surgery options are outlined above.
