About our private weight loss service

At Cromwell Hospital, we understand that no two people are the same, and that different people require different methods of weight loss.

That's why we provide a broad range of weight loss options, from dietary advice through to bariatric surgery, and work closely alongside you to help find the most suitable solution.

It's important to us that your weight loss journey is safe and sustainable. From bariatric consultants to dietitians and nurses, our team of specialists are at hand to ensure you're fully equipped with the right tools to help you maintain your weight for life.

Surgical weight loss options

Our surgical weight loss procedures are ideal for patients who need additional support in kickstarting their weight loss journey.

Gastric bypass surgery involves reducing the size of your stomach and bypassing your lower stomach and part of your intestine. This makes you feel fuller and suppresses your appetite.

A gastric band is an inflatable silicone band, which is placed around the top of your stomach. It works by slowing down how quickly food moves into your stomach, making you feel full earlier.

A gastric sleeve (sleeve gastrectomy) is a type of bariatric surgery which involves removing most of the stomach and converting the rest into a long, thin tube. This restricts the amount of food you can eat, and means you feel fuller sooner.

Non-surgical weight loss options

Our non-surgical procedures are suited to patients interested in less invasive weight loss options that require little downtime.

The Allurion Balloon (formerly known as Elipse) is a swallowable gastric balloon that requires no surgery, endoscopy, or anaesthesia.

When the balloon is swallowed and placed correctly in your gut, it helps to reduce your food intake by taking up space in the stomach and preventing you from feeling hungry.

The Orbera gastric balloon is one of the most widely used non-surgical approaches for helping people to lose weight.

The gastric balloon is passed through your throat and placed in your stomach during a quick, non-surgical procedure – meaning no incisions, stitches, or scars.

An endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) is an innovative, non-surgical bariatric procedure performed with the aid of an endoscopic suturing device. It reduces the size of the stomach to help patients to lose weight.
