Bariatric Surgery at Cleveland Clinic London

Bariatric surgery can help people lose weight and improve quality of life. There is no one type of candidate for bariatric surgery, and we will always tailor your treatment to your unique needs.
You could be a candidate for weight loss surgery if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • You have a body mass index (BMI) of over 40kg/m2.
  • You have a BMI of over 35kg/m2 and are experiencing severe negative health effects, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis or breathing problems related to being severely overweight.
  • You have a BMI of over 30kg/m2 and suffer with type 2 diabetes.
  • You are unable to achieve a healthy body weight for a sustained period of time, even through medically-supervised dieting.

Treatments and services include:

  • Monitoring of all obesity-related medical conditions and risk factors.
  • Therapeutic education to enable lifestyle changes that can produce sustained weight loss.
  • Therapeutic dietary and lifestyle education combined with the latest GLP-1 therapy which reduces hunger.
  • Laparoscopic bariatric surgery using the latest technology to minimise postoperative discomfort and aid fast recovery. All these procedures require a 1 night stay in hospital only.
    • Sleeve gastrectomy, a procedure that reduces the size of your stomach and so limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time.
    • Gastric bypass (mini-bypass, roux-en-Y bypass and duodenal switch), an operation that creates a small pouch to restrict food intake and bypasses a segment of the small intestine.
    • Adjustable gastric banding (also known as lap banding), where a band is placed around your stomach, so you do not need to eat as much to feel full.
  • Gastric balloon placement where a balloon is placed into the stomach using an endoscope to produce a constant feeling of fullness and aid short term weight loss.
