Weight Loss, Bariatric & Metabolic Surgery

Integrated Centre for Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery

Bariatric surgery includes a variety of procedures such as sleeve gastrectomy and roux-en-y gastric bypass (RYGB).

Intra-Gastric Balloon

This is a balloon inserted into your stomach either by swallowing it, or requiring insertion under guidance with a gastroscopy.

Allurion Elipse™ - Swallowable Weight Loss Balloon

The Allurion Elipse™ Balloon is the first swallowable weight loss balloon that involves no surgery, endoscopy and anaesthesia.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric sleeve surgery involves the removal of a large part of your stomach that induces weight loss by restricting food intake.

Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)

A Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) involves dividing the stomach to create a small pouch at the top.

Stomach Cancer Surgery

Stomach Cancer occurs when healthy cells in the inner layer of the stomach become abnormal and grow out of control.

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

Constant occurrence of acid reflux and heartburn may suggest that you are suffering from a chronic condition known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
