Weight Loss Surgery

Weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, is a procedure to help obese people lose weight when diet and exercise alone haven’t worked.  These surgeries restrict the amount of food you can eat and/or reduce the amount of food you can absorb.  They can provide the assistance you need to lose weight but you must be committed to shedding your excess weight by following a strict diet and changing your lifestyle.

Here at Berkshire Independent Hospital we offer both surgical and non-surgical weight loss options including: gastric balloon, gastric band, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.

Once you’ve taken the first step to losing this excess weight and made an appointment with a weight loss surgeon you can start to prepare for your new healthier lifestyle. During this consultation your bariatric surgeon will discuss in detail with you the weight loss options available and recommend the procedure most suited to your health and weight loss goals.

We have a specialist weight loss team of qualified and highly skilled bariatric surgeons, a bariatric lead nurse, a professional dietitian who can offer expert advice on your eating plan before and after weight loss surgery and chartered physiotherapists.

We’re committed to caring for, and supporting, you right the way through your weight loss experience. We offer expert advice on the best procedure for your needs, pre and post operation diet plans, regular weight monitoring and on-going support. Our bariatric lead nurse is available for advice and support throughout your weight loss journey.

More people are becoming obese and this can increase their risk of developing serious health conditions including: type 2 diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart disease, sleep apnoea, some cancers and strokes. It can also have a huge impact on their daily lives and their psychological wellbeing.

If you’re obese and you’ve been unsuccessful in losing weight through dieting, speak to us about how we can help you achieve your weight loss goals to become healthier and slimmer.
