Bristol Bariatric Service (BBS)
Bristol Bariatric Service is the second sub-service of the Bristol Weight Management and Bariatric Service (BWMBS) and offers weight loss surgery.
It is national guidance that you must have received intensive intervention from a specialist weight management service, such as WAMS, before being considered for referral on to a Weight Loss Surgery Team.
Weight loss surgery is a new and growing surgical specialty. Weight loss surgery can be an effective tool in patients with severe obesity to help promote long term and sustained weight loss. There are some limitations to the effects of weight loss surgery and therefore it is important for individuals to gain control over their eating behaviours before going forward for surgery.
