Bariatrics and Specialist Weight Management

What we do  

Morbid obesity is a complex problem for which bariatric surgery is a highly specialized intervention. 

It is indicated for patients in whom all prior efforts of intensive weight reduction have failed such as pharmacological, lifestyle and community weight management services.  Walsall Manor Hospital is a NHS designated Centre for weight loss surgery and offers a range of laparoscopic (key hole) bariatric procedures.

Our Multi-Disciplinary team fully trained in delivering the bariatric surgical service. The service is closely linked with our local community weight management service and provides a comprehensive service to our local population.

Patients will be motivated, counselled and adequately prepared prior to surgery to ensure their post-surgical compliance which is necessary for success.  Walsall Manor is one of the leading hospitals in the West midlands for laparoscopic bariatric surgery with reduced length of inpatient stays, early mobilization and discharge
