About The BioRing Gastric Band

The BioRing Gastric Band System consists of an adjustable gastric band designed to help you lose excess weight, improve weight-related health conditions and enhance quality of life. Gastric banding continues to be a popular choice for patients primarily due to it's safety profile, effectiveness and the fact that it is fully reversible and does not change or alter the anatomy.

Metabolic Surgery And Obesity

Bariatric surgery stems from the Greek word "Baros" meaning "weight" and refers to weight loss surgery. However, more recently the term "metabolic surgery" is widely used and defines the surgery as a set of gastrointestinal operations used with the intent to treat diabetes and Metabolic Dysfunctions, such as Obesity.



Choosing the Right Procedure

The first step in making a decision to have gastric band surgery is to assess yourself by checking your BMI. Just do the simple calculation below by entering your weight and height to give you an indication of whether you qualify for surgery.

If you qualify or require further information please contact us and we can arrange to put you in touch with a surgeon.

Once you have made a decision to commit to weight loss or metabolic surgery it is very important to make sure you choose the procedure that is right for you. The correct procedure depends on a range of factors. For example, if you have a BMI between 30 and 40 and you are below the age of 40, you need to be very careful choosing an operation that is high risk, requires long term supplements and is not reversible.

It is important to understand that there is no perfect weight loss operation and when you make the decision on which procedure to undertake that you also compare the risks and benefits for each one.
