we don't put testimonials on our website to attract patients, we believe that the National Gastric

The Bariatric Surgery Group is lead by Obesity Surgeons who treat patients every day both in the
NHS and private sector. Their expertise are second to none and are regularly called upon by fellow obesity centres across
the world for advice. Other weight loss treatment centres in the UK may offer weight loss procedures, often taking patients
abroad risking potential complications. Our approach is more responsible, we have strict ethical protocols but above all we
will do nothing to jepordise the health of the patients we treat. All our surgeons are GMC and BOSS registered, so feel assured
you are in good and safe hands.
We urge all patients to really find out about weight loss procedures and
treatments before choosing any provider to have their surgical and non-surgical intervention. Don't be dubed into clever
advertising, lots of patient testimonials and celebratory promotional statements. Speak to the real experts who do the procedures
everyday, here at the Bariatric Surgery Group, National Gastric Balloon Centre.
Our treatments cover a broad spectrum of overweight, obese, morbidly obese and super obese patients.
In addition to obesity treatments we also offer body contouring procedures. These are specific for patients who feel they
need corrective plastic surgery to remove unslightly body contours such as excess skin.
Comprimise on treatment options by taking short-cuts to save money and offer cheaper ineffective alternatives
does not bode well with our company and clinical philosophy. We only offer the best surgical and non-surgical alternatives but
this does not mean it has to cost the earth!

gastric reflux, cancer. Above all it is to improve the overall quality of life.
