Ramsay understand how important the decision making is when you are considering weight loss surgery.

We are committed to helping you on every step of your weight loss surgery journey with information, care and that special attention that makes all the difference.

Some of our team members have lived the weight loss surgery journey themselves, so we know a little more about the reality of life after bariatric surgery. Weight loss surgery is the first part of a long process and aftercare is the key to your success. Support is ultimately the one part of your journey that truly does make a real difference to your end goal.

When creating the Ramsay Weight Loss aftercare programme, we listened to patient feedback and developed a programme guided by our patients. Our programme will ensure you learn about and have the chance to get used to the changes in lifestyle and eating habits you will need to make to get the most out of your surgery.

Gastric Band Surgery
Gastric Band

Adjustable gastric banding / gastric bands (sometimes known as a lap band) is a restrictive Bariatric surgerical procedure. A silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch above the band, that is about the size of a golf ball. This forms a large pouch below the band.

Gastric Bypass Surgery
Gastric Bypass

There are several variations of a Gastric Bypass. The most common procedure in the UK is the Roux-en-Y, also known as RYGB. It is a combination of restrictive and malabsorptive procedures, therefore has a two-way weight reducing effect.A small pouch is created by stapling off a section of the upper part of the stomach. Below the staple line the stomach will remain but no food will enter here.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric Sleeve

Gastric sleeve surgery is a restrictive procedure only. Two thirds of the stomach is resected and removed, leaving a smaller stomach in the shape of a sleeve.The portion of the stomach removed produces a hormone that stimulates appetite and hunger. Removing this portion of stomach results in a significant reduction in appetite.

Gastric Balloon
Gastric Balloon

For many patients with a BMI (body mass index) of 27 - 35 surgery is not always available or recommended according to the NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) guidelines, as patients with a lower BMI do not normally qualify for weight loss surgery.The gastric balloon is a soft, expandable intragastric (inside the stomach) device that is temporarily inserted into the stomach.

Gastric Band Conversion
Conversion Surgery

Surgery patients are not always successful in reaching their weight loss goals. Reasons for post-operative weight loss failure can include problems with the original surgery, as well as the patient’s inability to comply with necessary life style changes.
