Bariatric surgery is highly effective for weight loss and long-term maintenance of target weight. It is also a very effective therapy for diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnoea and other health problems related to excess weight.
The risks associated with bariatric surgery are low as long as it is performed in a specialised department such as our clinic. The majority of operations are performed laparoscopically.
The patient can expect to lose their excess weight within months of the procedure. More than 80% of patients quickly experience a significant improvement or resolution of their weight-related health problems. In addition, we can see a remarkable improvement in quality of life.
The choice of surgical technique depends on the patient’s age, BMI and eating behaviour.
