At Baltic Bariatric we offer affordable weight loss surgery for patients suffering from mild to chronic obesity – proven treatments to help you lose the weight and keep it off.
Baltic Bariatic… it’s your better life!
For mildly obese patients or those reluctant to undergo an invasive procedure, there’s the Endoscopically Inserted Gastric Balloon (EIB), which can be very effective when combined with some simple lifestyle changes.
For patients with more serious overweight (BMI>30), there are Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG) and Roux-n-Y Gastric Bypass (RnY) procedures. To help you decide which procedure is right for you, you can take our easy 3-minute Test.
Of course, bariatric surgery is not for everyone. But clearly there’s an enormous amount of clinical evidence that shows bariatric patients experience positive post-operative improvements in all aspects of their health and quality of life – from increased energy, enhanced self-esteem, to better mobility and even improved sexual function.

Within 24-hours one of our specialists will call or email with information on our complete program, including travel options and special companion offers.

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.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also known as Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), is a bariatric surgery 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.
PRICE: 5750 €
Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass Surgery, specifically the Roux-en-Y technique (RGB), is worldwide, the most popular bariatric surgery 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.
