Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery

Welcome to Auralia Bariatrics

If you are one of the growing number of people who find it difficult to control their weight through dieting alone, it may be time to consider an alternative.

In the last decade great advances have been made in the surgical treatment of obesity and, despite a widespread belief to the contrary, surgical weight loss procedures are not dangerous. Whilst gastric banding is both highly effective and remarkably safe, nowadays even more invasive procedures such as the sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass, are regarded as routine and low-risk.

At Auralia we recognize that obesity is a lifelong disease in need of life-long management. In this sense obesity is never “cured”, but surgical treatments are now so effective that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is a realistic goal for the majority of those with longstanding weight problems. Importantly, the impact of surgery on a range of obesity-associated health problems such as diabetes and liver disease, can be dramatic and life-transforming.

At Auralia we have a team of experienced and skilled bariatric specialists who can advise you as to whether a surgical weight-loss procedure would be suitable. And if it is, they can guide you through every stage of the process. The starting point is always the least invasive option, but the key principle is always to recommend the right surgical option in any individual case.

So, if you feel the time is right to think about an alternative to failed diets, why not pick up the phone and get in touch? We would be happy to help!
