Why choose Nuffield Health Tunbridge Wells Hospital for your weight loss surgery?

Our specialist staff and bariatric consultants pride themselves on treatment that considers all aspects of your health and lifestyle. Our team works with you to assess your specific lifestyle, eating habits, dieting history, current weight and medical history.

Weight loss surgery is only the beginning of a programme that can lead you to lifelong change.

What is weight loss surgery?

Weight loss surgery reduces the amount of food you can eat by reducing the size of your stomach or bypassing your stomach.

There are several surgical procedures available at our Tunbridge Wells hospital that can help you to lose weight and maintain long term weight loss. These include:

We perform keyhole surgery to minimise recovery time and reduce the risk of infection and scarring. Your consultant surgeon will:

  • Assess your individual needs and risks
  • Discuss which option would be right for you to get the best results.

Weight loss surgery treatments are clinically proven to work, with excess weight loss of up to 50% with gastric bands and up to 60% with gastric bypasses after two years.

Our unique approach to weight loss at Nuffield Health Tunbridge Wells Hospital

Personal treatment is key to our philosophy and you will meet your consultant (who will perform the surgery) at the very beginning of your journey with us. By getting to know you as a person, how we can best support you, and helping with the highs (and lows), we will ultimately ensure the best possible outcome.

We will discuss all the weight loss options available to you and how to prepare for the surgery itself. Our dedicated team will be on hand to offer expert advice and support both before and after treatment. Undertaking bariatric surgery is a big decision and not to be taken lightly, but can help transform the lives of suitable candidates.
