The Bariatric Group specialises in weight loss surgery. We started the service in 2003 and now have 13 surgeons, undertaking operations in eight towns/cities in the South of England. All experienced consultant bariatric surgeons, they also run their own NHS practices, and have collectively performed over 2,000 operations (both NHS and private patients) over the past three years.
The Bariatric Group provides weight loss* surgery and aftercare for those who wish to undertake treatment privately.
Many medical studies have shown that once a person is severely overweight, they can still derive some benefit from diet, behavioural modification or exercise programmes, but they are rarely sufficient to achieve significant weight loss. Anti-obesity drugs may also be helpful but are not recommended for long term use. The only treatment that is clinically proven to produce significant weight loss is bariatric surgery.
World-wide, hundreds of thousands of patients have had successful weight loss surgery and there are numerous publications in the medical literature on its benefits. As well as enjoying the social and fitness benefits of being lighter, many patients find that they no longer need treatment for obesity-related diseases and their quality of life improves dramatically.
