Assessment and pre-surgery preparation

We feel that preparation for surgery is the key to success, and we offer 1:1 appointments as well as a range of group sessions to provide you with the opportunity to discuss surgery, the risks and benefits, as well as the long-term implications of the different surgical procedures.

At our assessment clinic you will have the opportunity to meet our team, and we look forward to meeting you there to ensure that bariatric surgery is the right option for you.
