Types of surgery

Weight loss surgery is a highly effective way of tackling obesity and helps to reduce some of the health issues caused by the condition. It is not a quick fix answer to weight issues and will require long term changes to your diet and lifestyle.

Before making the decision to have surgery it is important that you understand that this is a lifetime commitment to your health and well being.

Having decided to make this positive change in your life you will then meet our MDT team. Together you will discuss the treatment options available and providing that you are generally healthy, and are a suitable candidate (meet your local CCG criteria) you will be listed for surgery. Unfortunately surgery cannot be offered to patients that do not meet the criteria set in place by your local CCG.

You will also be able to access a similar service at our private facility, The Cobham Clinic.
