Patient Reviews for Bariatric Surgery at Weight Loss Riga

Bariatric surgery is a procedure with few equals. It’s perhaps as close as any single procedure can come to being the answer to all your problems. By undergoing this type of surgery the obese individual will not only find relief from the weight issues that have been the dominant feature of their life, they will also obtain relief from a multitude of comorbidities – those health issues that arise solely because the person is obese. Those associated health problems typically include:

  • Arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Type II diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Depression
  • Risk of stroke
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Acid reflux
  • Gout
  • Fatty liver
  • And many more

Under normal circumstances any one of the above conditions would be enough to seek medical treatment. But with bariatric surgery the formerly obese individual will see both dramatic weight loss and a marked reduction in symptoms related to these associated conditions. In many cases the condition itself will be cured. There is no other type of elective surgery that has such wide ranging positive effects on an individual and their quality of life.

At Weight Loss Riga Clinic we focus on 4 different types of bariatric surgery:

  • Gastric Bypass Surgery
  • Mini-Gastric Bypass Surgery
  • Gastric Sleeve Surgery
  • Gastric Balloon Insertion
