The Bariatric and Metabolic surgery unit at Lourdes hospital offers a comprehensive treatment for obesity and its related disorders. Our lead surgeon has completed a fellowship council (USA) accredited Fellowship in Laparoscopy and Bariatric Surgery at the University of Iowa (USA) which is a certified centre of excellence in bariatric surgery and a premier centre considered by many to be the birth place of bariatric surgery. He has done over 110 bariatric procedures in both USA and UK. The bariatric and metabolic unit at Lourdes hospital follows the same protocols currently in practice in both United States and United Kingdom. We are the only unit in the surrounding area which offers all types of bariatric operations and services.
