Weight Loss

At Parkside Hospital we offer a variety of weight loss options, including surgical and non-surgical. All are consultant-led and supported by our Senior Dietitian. 

Gastric Balloon

A gastric balloon – sometimes also called an intragastric balloon – is a procedure aimed at those wishing to lose weight. It works by reducing the size of the stomach and limiting the amount of food it can hold, meaning the patient feels fuller even after very small meals. This is one way of losing weight without the need for surgery.

Gastric Banding

Gastric banding (also known as lap banding) is a popular weight loss procedure that causes the individual to feel full even after eating only small meals. This effect is achieved by restricting the stomach’s capacity to hold food with a form of a restrictive band. This means you eat less and lose weight as a result.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric sleeve surgery – or a sleeve gastrectomy – is a weight loss procedure for those with a BMI of over 35. It is considered to be less significant than a full gastric bypass procedure, but is more effective than gastric banding. Unlike gastric banding, a sleeve gastrectomy is also permanent.
