Weight loss surgery

Gastric Bypass


This is considered the ‘Gold standard’ bariatric operation with the longest experience worldwide. It involves dividing the stomach into two - a small ‘pouch’ where the food you eat bypasses the larger section of the stomach and enters the bowel bypassing a section of that also. With this operation it is possible to lose up to 50-70% of your excess weight. Gastric bypass surgery is carried out laparoscopically (using keyhole surgery techniques) and takes 2-2.5 hrs depending on  your BMI. The hospital stay is usually 2 nights.


Patients need to commit to taking supplements lifelong.

It has grown in popularity over recent years as an alternative to gastric bypass and surgery is often shorter.
