East Midlands Bariatric Surgeons is the most experienced healthcare services company in the UK. We work with a variety of hospital groups including Nuffield Health which operates to the highest standards of clinical care in state-of-the-art facilities, with Consultant-led treatment, spotlessly clean rooms, and a team of dedicated and experienced nurses.
Weight-loss surgery can help people who are obese lose weight by restricting the volume of food the stomach can hold or the amount of calories the body absorbs. It has also been shown to reverse type 2 diabetes and lower the risk of heart disease. Like any surgery, it comes with risks. However, the average complication rates for all hospitals are considered to be still very low.
Recent studies have shown, patients who opted for surgery at the top hospital groups spent less money on their procedures, a finding that might be linked to shorter stays, as patients returned home from top-rated facilities an average half day earlier. It’s really important that patients research the quality of the hospital and ask questions throughout the process.
Our outcomes with our hospital groups, including weight loss and complication rates, are very good. We attribute our success to exacting care of patients before, during and after surgery and adherence to all the necessary guidelines. All patients undergo extensive evaluation by our multidisciplinary team to minimize risk. If you choose to have bariatric surgery, your choice should be based on discussions with your doctor and/or your surgeon, including goals and strategy for long-term care.
Our goal is to provide you with an environment to educate and support you in preparation for weight loss and weight loss surgery. Whenever possible, we encourage family involvement throughout the process.
