Surgery for Adolescents
Obesity in the UK is now at its highest level.
It is now recognised and accepted that through careful pre-assessment and procedure guidance that Bariatric surgery is offering weight loss possibilities to those who perhaps would have exhausted all other methods and failed.
We must recognise medical and social support from the Parent, GP, Paediatric or psychological Consultant will result in a smooth pathway to Bariatric surgery, which not only reduces future health risks, aids self esteem and increases the chance of a normal life and acceptance by society.
WLS Group have already got a proven track record to establish care for the younger weight loss surgery patient and with a wealth of knowledge care and skills we endeavour to make this weight loss journey fun!
We perform surgery on adolescents at the following hospitals:
"I was an overweight child, teenager and then adult. If I had had the opportunity of an intervention at an earlier age then maybe I wouldn’t of reached the dangerous weight of 25 stone in my late 20’s.
At the WLS Group we pride ourselves on helping those patients that other providers shy away from ………. We are a centre of excellence for Bariatric Surgery and also offer weight loss surgery to adolescents."
