The UK's Leading Weight Loss Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery Provider Launches Bariatric Solution - Another bariatric solution has been launched by SurgiCare, the UK's leading weight loss surgery provider. SurgiCare is now offering gastric band procedures as a day case option, so that patients can recover in the comfort of their own home.

SurgiCare, the UK's leading weight loss surgery provider, has launched another bariatric solution to its patients. SurgiCare has performed almost 1,000 weight loss surgery procedures and is now offering gastric bands as a day case option.

A gastric band is an inflatable silicone ring that is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small opening to the rest of the stomach. Once in your body, the gastric band controls the amount of food required to fill you up and the speed at which food passes from the pouch to your stomach.

A gastric band is effective at producing weight loss because it enables you to feel more satisfied on smaller portions of food, so you'll feel full for longer on fewer calories - triggering your body to lose weight.

SurgiCare's specialist weight loss surgeons have been working alongside our dietitians and nurses, to give patients the option to be fitted with a gastric band during the course of one day, without the need for a hospital stay. This means SurgiCare's patients can relax and recover from the procedure in the comfortable surroundings of their own home with support from their family and friends.

The concept of excellence through specialization has always been at the heart of everything SurgiCare does. We only work with 'gold standard' obesity surgeons that are specialists in the upper gut and stomach using keyhole techniques. A gastric band procedure should be a straight forward operation without the need for a hospital stay, which we understand can make patients feel anxious and sometimes stop them from taking that all important step to a new, lighter and more enjoyable life.
