Multidisciplinary care is vital
Obesity is a complex problem with many contributing factors. These can be physical, behavioural, psychological and emotional. Treatment of obesity needs to focus on all these aspects, not just one. Whilst surgery very much helps with the physical aspects of weight control, specialists of various disciplines are needed to aid and support the patient in other areas – general medical care, nutrition and emotional support.
Significant weight loss is, for many patients, a life-changing event and can be quite a journey. Having expertise available to provide advice, treatment and support from different angles, allows more effective holistic care and better results.

Weight loss surgery options
Gastric Sleeve: Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy or Tube Gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure that limits the amount of food you eat by reducing the size of your stomach.
Gastric Banding: Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding involves inserting a specially made band around the top of the stomach. It is a keyhole operation whereby no organs are cut, removed or rearranged. It is completely reversible.
Gastric Bypass: Gastric bypass is a very well established weight loss procedure. The stomach is divided to create a small gastric pouch and a bypass is made to allow food to move directly into the intestines.
