Bristol Bariatric Service (BBS)

Bariatric Assessment

We have strict criteria as to who is eligible for weight loss surgery.

Bariatric Operations

We offer 3 types of weight loss operation and they are all keyhole (laparoscopic).

Gastric Band

The placement of a gastric band is one of the most common operations for weight loss.

Gastric Bypass

The gastric bypass involves the creation of a small pouch at the top of the stomach with staples.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

This operation involves removing approximately 80% of the stomach, leaving a thin tube or sleeve.

Bariatric Recovery

Most people recover quickly after weight loss surgery & feel ready to resume activities after a few days.
