The Intragastric Balloon procedure is a less invasive procedure in which a medical grade synthetic balloon is inserted endoscopically into the stomach. Once inserted, it’s filled, via removable catheter, with a saline solution sufficient to displace about one third of the patient’s stomach volume. Learn more

Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), is a technique that radically reduces the size of the stomach, reshaping it into a cylinder, roughly the size and shape of a banana.
In most VSG procedures, about 85% of total stomach volume is removed leaving roughly 60-100 ml of remaining stomach capacity. Learn more

Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery, specifically the Roux-en-Y technique (RGB), is worldwide, the most popular bariatric procedure. The surgeon staples the upper part of the stomach, separating it from the lower part. The small intestine is rerouted but remains connected to both pouches. Learn more

Obesity is a worldwide epidemic, especially prevalent in developed countries like the UK. People suffering from extreme overweight are at particular risk for many obesity related health problems such as Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, sleep apnea as well as premature death. Fortunately, several medically proven surgical solutions are available which offer effective, permanent weight reduction.
Weight loss surgery achieves its goals by artificially limiting the amount and rate of nutrient absorption. The simplest method is the gastric balloon procedure which uses stomach volume displacement to restrict food intake. Gastric sleeve surgery achieves weight reduction by surgically altering stomach shape and size while also inhibiting a hunger stimulating hormone. Gastric bypass surgery combines both stomach volume reduction and nutrient restriction by removing part of the patient’s stomach and upper intestine. Both sleeve and bypass procedures are performed using minimally invasive laparascopic techniques.
Extensive research observing post-op weight loss for bariatric patients have conclusively proven that bariatric surgery is the most effective way to arrest and reverse chronic adult obesity. Average loss of excess weight is about 60%, with a mortality rate worldwide of <1%. Obesity surgery combined with changes to diet and exercise offers the best hope for shedding overweight and keeping it off.
