Our comprehensive weight loss programs have been designed to end your struggle with obesity, and arm you with the tools to live a healthy and active life. We believe in empowering you with all the information you need to make informed decisions towards your health. We will walk you through this life-changing journey.

We perform three main types of weight loss surgery – the Gastric Bypass, the Gastric Sleeve, and the Gastric Band. We also offer the more temporary EndoBarrier Therapy, which has proven to be valuable in treating Type 2 Diabetes. Your surgeons will be able to suggest the option ideal to your individual situation once they have thoroughly looked at your medical history and current health.

Our unique approach provides you with the opportunity to partner with a previous patient of ours - someone who has experienced the journey you are embarking on and its benefits.

Post surgery, you can expect a dramatic weight loss and significant improvement in obesity-related health conditions such as sleep apnoea, diabetes and high blood pressure.

 

Calculate your BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on your height and weight. Your BMI is useful in identifying your risk of morbidity and mortality as a result of being overweight. If your BMI is over 35, or over 30 and you are experiencing health issues, weight loss surgery should be considered.

Gastric Bypass

  • How does it work?
    The Gastric Bypass restricts the stomach’s capacity for food and creates a bypass to reduce the absorption of nutrients, leading to less calorie intake. It’s a good operation for individuals with a sweet tooth as it discards excess calories. It is not reversible, but has fast, long-lasting results, and tends to achieve more weight loss than the Gastric Band.
  • What is the procedure?
    This common procedure has two stages, both done through laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery. Firstly, the stomach is divided into two using surgical staples. This creates a small food pouch restricting the amount of food intake. A Y-shaped section of the small intestine is then attached to allow food to bypass the lower stomach and parts of the small intestine. The surgery usually takes 1-2 hours and requires a 3-4 day stay in hospital. We recommend two weeks of rest before resuming work.

Gastric Sleeve

  • How does it work?
    The Gastric Sleeve significantly reduces the size and capacity of the stomach, allowing less food intake and a reduction in hunger signals. It is a permanent, non-reversible procedure, which emphasises portion control and healthy eating habits for the long term.
  • What is the procedure? 
    Performed under general anaesthetic, this advanced laparoscopic (keyhole) surgery permanently removes a large amount of the stomach (up to 80%) leaving the rest of the digestive system intact to perform normally. Benefits include the full absorption of nutrients, including essential vitamins and minerals. The procedure commonly takes about one hour and requires a three day stay in hospital. We recommend you taking two weeks of rest before resuming work.

Gastric Band

  • How does it work?
    The Gastric Band is a highly effective, restrictive method that separates the stomach into two sections, leaving a small opening in between to allow food to pass through. It is adjustable and reversible, with minimal risk. It works by reducing hunger, with patients feeling full with just an entrée-sized portion of food.
  • What is the procedure?
    Through four keyhole incisions, a medical-grade silicon band is placed around the upper end of the your stomach, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the remainder of the stomach. The band is then inflated with a saline solution. It can be adjusted over time. The minimally invasive procedure takes around an hour. We usually recommend a short overnight stay in hospital post-surgery and a week or two of rest before you return to work.
