From time to time our patient support groups feature guest speakers. Of late we have welcomed Carole Bowen-Ball, a member of the British Obesity Surgery Patient Association and an established food writer with over 35 years experience in the food arena. Carole has recently published the UK’s first bariatric cookery book, written specifically to help those who have undergone weight loss surgery.

We offer the following treatments:
Gastric band surgery
Gastric band surgery is a procedure for patients wishing to lose weight and achieve long term weight loss. Gastric band surgery limits how much food you eat by inserting an inflatable band around the stomach dividing it into two parts.
Gastric bypass surgery
Gastric bypass surgery is a procedure where the stomach is stapled into two parts making your stomach smaller taking in less food. The food bypasses the stomach and part of the intestine through a small intestine that has been rerouted to the small stapled part of the stomach.
Gastric sleeve surgery
Gastric sleeve surgery is a procedure for patients wanting to lose weight. When a gastric sleeve is placed around the stomach, it reduces its size and makes you feel fuller.
A duodenal switch produces the same reduction as in a gastric sleeve, however with a duodenal switch, part of the stomach is removed.
