Bariatric Surgery – Weight Loss Treatments
Weight loss surgery otherwise known as Bariatric surgery is performed on patients who are either excessively overweight or medically obese. It is typically performed on patients that have a high BMI and where other non-surgical methods have not sufficiently reduced calorie intake or absorption.
Patients can be treated in several ways: reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band; removing a portion of the stomach; gastric bypass surgery or through other treatments.
At 152 Harley Street, we offer the full range of weight loss surgery procedures either under Local Anaesthetic & Sedation or under General Anaesthetic for the more complex procedures such as a Gastric Bypass.
