Hi, thank you for interest in having weight loss surgery with us in Tallinn, Estonia. My name is Georgina, I am the UK/IE representative and I am here to make this weight loss journey with you from your initial enquiry through to after your surgery and beyond!
I am a former bypass patient having had surgery in August 2016. After trying pretty much every diet going and losing weight only to put it on again, I finally decided it was time to look at other options. After consulting with my GP in order to get on the NHS waiting list for bariatric surgery I realised that the process was very long, and I may not have even been a successful candidate for surgery. Private treatment was too expensive and so I started to look abroad.
I found Bariatric Services and spoke to my dad who as an anesthetist had actually had experience of working within the Baltic region, he actually reassured me that the healthcare system in the region was of the highest standards, and that was it, making a huge saving compared to treatment at home, I booked my operation date in Tallinn!
My surgery was performed by one of Northern Europe’s best and most prominent bariatric surgeons, Dr Ilmar Kaur. Bariatric Services assured me of the highest of standards, excellent care and a positive outcome and I was definitely not disappointed! The whole team are kind, caring and professional, in all honesty I rate their standards of care and expertise as higher than those I have encountered in the UK – I cannot praise them highly enough.
Since my surgery I have lost over 65 kg and also successfully had a little girl in 2018 and have still maintained my weight loss. I stayed in contact with the Bariatric Services team and was very happy to be asked to become their UK/IE customer representative. This role gives me the opportunity to help other patients have the same opportunity I did! I had such a positive experience with Bariatric Services that I want to help others every step of the way experience it for themselves.
This isn’t just life-saving surgery, it is life changing!
