Surgical Options

The weight loss operations recognised as effective by most surgeons include Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric banding (adjustable or non-adjustable). Blackrock Clinic bariatric team has chosen the procedures with the highest long term success rate to offer to our patients.

Our multidisciplinary approach to weight loss

Our bariatric team has a patient inclusive, multi-disciplinary approach to weight loss. You the patient are as much a part of the treatment plan as our healthcare professionals. It is your own motivation which will underpin the success of your gastric bypass or gastric sleeve treatment.

The nature of excess weight is to exacerbate any underlying conditions a patient may have, as well as to introduce other incapacitating complaints. Along with progressive ailments such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and sleep apnea, many patients find their lifestyles disrupted. Fertility can be impaired, depression can become overwhelming. With this in mind, your team will include a variety of medical disciplines, each experienced in bariatric care.

Patient Stories

A number of patients have been kind enough to share their experiences of gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery. Find out what our patients think about their gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy treatments.

As long as I can remember I’ve always struggled with my weight.

As long as I can remember I've struggled with my weight, but it came to a head when I stopped playing sport on a regular basis. At the age of 35 my weight shot up to 33.5 stone. I made the decision to enquire about gastric bypass surgery when I nearly collapsed at a band rehearsal due to being on my feet for too long. The surgery itself went extremely well. Mayilone’s professionalism and attention to detail are second to none. As of today I weigh just under 18 stone and still dropping. I go to the gym 3 times a week and I run between 15 and 18 kilometres a week also. I have my life back and it’s because of the decision I made to have the surgery.

I was open to a whole array of serious medical complications.

It is November now, 9 months post-surgery and I am 96.8lbs down from my heaviest weight. How do I feel? AMAZING! The biggest lesson in all of this I have learnt is that of self-acceptance. Self acceptance for the body and physical appearance I have today. Is it the body I want forever? I am full of lumps and bumps, do I need to continue to work hard to lose more and tone? YES YES YES! But can I do it, yes. Read Full Story
