Weight loss surgery

Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been an NHS accredited weight loss surgery centre for the south of England since 2001. Our multi-disciplinary team of staff include 4 surgeons who between them carry out around 400 weight loss surgery procedures in a year.

Therefore, it is a natural progression to offer the service to our private patients, knowing that they are going to receive the expertise and safety that not all private patient units can offer.

We currently offer 3 procedures, Laparoscopic Gastric BandLaparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy and Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass.

Our patients are fully assessed by a multidisciplinary team prior to surgery to ensure that an operation will be safe, appropriate and will fulfil the needs and expectations of each individual patient. You will have the opportunity to discuss surgery, the risks and benefits as well as the long-term implications and responsibilities of the different procedures.
