Overview of obesity surgery services
Healthier Weight is exclusively devoted to the management of overweight and obese patients. No other healthcare organisation in Europe provides such a comprehensive range of weight management services.

Healthier Weight was started by Dr David Ashton BSc MD, PhD because he felt the medical profession did not treat overweight and obese people well. “Too often patients are made to feel it’s their fault that they have a weight problem. We don’t blame patients – we help them.”

The Healthier Weight team includes specialist health educators who provide individual support and long-term care to both medical and surgical patients and some of the most experienced obesity surgeons in Europe.

Obesity surgery options include gastric balloon, gastric banding including SILS and Easyband, all types of gastric bypass including Roux-en-y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and duodenal switch; bilio-pancreatic diversion (BPD) and Bandinaro, an operation that combines both the gastric band and gastric bypass.
