Weight Loss Surgery
Weight loss surgery is designed to help obese people lose weight. Also known as bariatric surgery these operations restrict the amount of food you can eat and/or reduce the amount of food you can absorb. They act as a helping hand to losing weight when diet and exercise alone haven’t worked. For effective weight loss you must be committed to keeping to a strict diet and changing your lifestyle.
Here at Winfield Hospital we offer a comprehensive range of weight loss treatments including the non-surgical gastric balloon and the surgical options: gastric band, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.
We have a dedicated weight loss team including: a qualified and experienced bariatric surgeon, Mr David Hewin, a team of bariatric nurse specialists and, a professional dietician who can offer expert nutritional advice on making the most of the procedure you have chosen.
We understand the importance of getting prepared for surgery and providing excellent aftercare. We’ll be there to support you all the way through your weight loss journey. You’ll have access to our team of specialist bariatric nurses for advice and regular medical reviews, our dietician, the bariatric surgeon (as clinically indicated) and support groups.
There is a continued rise in obesity and with this comes an increase in the risk of developing serious health conditions such as: type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, sleep apnoea, some cancers and strokes. Obesity can also greatly affect our day to day lives and wellbeing.
