Having the operation, I the best decision I have made. I had a Gastric Sleeve with Dr. Ilmar Kaur in May and had been considering having a stomach operation for many years. The reason I chose Estonia was that I could be accompanied by a translator who had had the operation in Estonia. I have lost 51.3 kg since I applied for the operation with Dr. Ilmar Kaur, at that time I weighed 150,8 kg and managed to go down to 145 kg on the pre-up diet, three weeks before operation day, 16. May 2018 and today, January 15 2019, I’m 99.5 kilos I feel much better today, I have started to swim in the sea, go out for walks and to the gym and I love it. I have always been overweight, I have managed to lose weight but have always gained it again. I am not going to do gain the weight again. I also feel much better mentally after the operation. I know that I am not finished with this project, this is something I will have to work with for the rest of my life. I recommend Dr. Ilmar Kaur and his people a 100%.
Well my experience with Bariatic Services is very good. I got a very good service from day one and I can give your company top score. Your city and your country is very beautiful too. All service during my hospital stay and until now has been great. It’s good to know you care about your patients 🙂 gives my a secure feeling
I feel very good and it is very good to feel better about yourself and self-image is stronger. Nice to go shopping for clothes and ask for size S or M instead of XL and trousers 30″/31″ instead of 36″/38″ . Well I don’t spend much time visiting restaurants 🙂 🙂 Was it right for me to take this big step i n my life. I say YES
So, now 6 month after surgery, I weight 13 stone (82.5kg). My BMI is 27.7. I have lost 5 stone 6 pounds (34kg). I feel healthier, I have more energy, I can run up 3 flights of stairs without getting out of breath! I suffer from less chest infections, coughs and colds since the surgery. I can buy nice clothes. I eat out regularly, but only eat salads and soups. I lost some hair after the surgery, my hair felt thinner, but after 6 months it has started to grow back. I take my supplements every day and I have had my blood checked, my vitamin and mineral levels are good.
When I decided to go for surgery I had read up on the subject, I went in knowing everything there was to know, or so I thought. The process is hard, you will struggle and it will be painful. But thanks to the excellent care I recived from bariatric services I got my bearings. I have struggled after surgery and the cravings have been there but having the support from Tallinn has been helpful. I got good advice on eating and a thorough instructions on what to expect after surgery. My life is really different from what it was before, I have taken up walking and am focusing on health, instead of weight. The weight will come off but the body I want afterwards is going to take some hard work. Life is not about food anymore, its about living in the moment and enjoying life in a totally different way than before.
After years of yo-yo and fad dieting, I decided I needed to do something serious about my weight. My health both physically and mentally was being affected by my obesity. I began to research bariatric surgery as an option and came across www.bariatricservices.eu I was hesitant at first about going abroad for surgery as you hear about a lot of horror stories! however, from my first contact with the surgery coordinator Merle I was instantly put at ease, her professionalism, efficiency and understanding of my needs and fears was second to none, she explained everything about the mini gastric bypass and completely reassured me.Read full story
The hospital was 5 star and the staff treated me with dignity and excellent care. DR Ilmar Kaur is nothing short of an angel, I am forever thankful for him and his gifted hands for changing my life for the better, I have so much more energy and confidence now and hope to continue to have into the future< I would highly recommend Dr Kaur and his team for anyone considering weight loss surgery.
I had a great experience with Bariatric Services. The staff spoke good English, the facilities were of the highest degree and the atmosphere friendly. The medical staff was very professional and thorough. They did necessary tests and asked questions so I was well prepared, both physically and mentally. All information I received was correct and the beautiful Tallinn was a very good experience with my husband. I lost a lot of weight every week after the surgery and took care to follow the excellent advice from the doctors. I highly recommend Doctor Ilmar Kaur and Bariatric Services for anyone in the search for a better life.
Everything is going so Well. I have dropped 38,5 kg since the surgery. I Can Eat all foods, just In less amounts.
Well so far I have lost 5 stones in weight and I’m feeling great and get very happy. My confidence has come back and so has my life! My experience with Bariatric services was great, all the staff were great and so efficient even down to the transport to and from the airport. I would recommend you all to anyone. Many Thanks!
Last November I had gastric distillization surgery in Tallinn arranged by Merle from Bariatric Services and performed by Dr Kaur and I wrote a review saying how excellently everything had been done by both Merle and Dr Kaur. He said that at the time that should the amount of intestine bypassed not be sufficient and I did not have the expected weight loss then he would carry out further surgery free of charge. He was conservative in his surgery as my intestine was shorter than average and he did not want to bypass too much initially.Read full story
At first I lost a small amount of weight but this did not continue nor was I able to maintain the loss so in August I contacted Merle again to ask for their help. As they had promised last year, further surgery was arranged at no cost to myself save for the travel and initial hotel stay. The arrangements were made swiftly and smoothly with Merle’s usual attention to detail and the date for surgery was set for 12th September. Merle picked me up from the hotel on that morning and took me to the hospital – a different, private one this time – and after the usual precautionary tests the surgery was done at lunchtime. Unfortunately I suffered a pulmonary embolism afterwards and had to be kept in intensive care for a couple of nights. The care I received was excellent from everyone – Dr Kaur, the nursing staff and other health professionals. When I was well enough to leave the hospital Merle took me back to the hotel for my last night in Tallinn – at no charge to me – and I returned home without further incident. I had been provided with all the necessary medications including blood thinning injections and tablets, vitamins and supplements and all the information that my doctor here in the UK needed to take over my care.
Since my return I have fully recovered very well and Merle has been in touch with me with questions from Dr Kaur. The dietician who advised me before I left the hospital has also emailed me with details of the supplements I need and where to obtain them.
I cannot praise everyone concerned highly enough. Just as last year, from beginning to end everything was done smoothly, efficiently and very professionally. In addition everyone was just so nice and kind. I am confident that this time the procedure will be successful – the fact that it did not work as well as it should have done before was entirely down to the peculiarities of my intestine and not any fault of the surgery. I would not hesitate to recommend both Bariatric Services and this procedure of distillization to anyone who is thinking about having it done. I would be happy to answer any questions that anyone might have if they would like to contact me.
Thank you Merle and thank you Dr Kaur”
“I have lost now 31 kg since operation (107 kg). The operation was and is life changing and I guess life saving. If I look how I was living and feeling compared how I feel and live now. In your Clinic we were treated so nicely and very profesionally. I came in after a big decission to do the operation and a bit scared, but you, the staff and the doctor made me feel at ease. All in all I can and will recommend your clinic and also the operation to people who need it.”
I have lost 18kg so far, and I feel just great 🤸🏼♂️!
My blodtests look fine: Fe, vitamin B, Na/Ca
Im so happy with the overall process, everything went smooth.
I will recommend You to others
I am very happy that I found Bariatric Services online and decided to get my Mini Gastric Bypass surgery in Tallinn. I arrived late in the evening and spent the first night at a nice hotel where I was picked up in the morning by Merle. I was very impressed by the modern hospital and the lovely private room where I spent the next 4 days.
Soon after my arrival Dr. Kaur visited and we discussed everything I needed to know. And suddenly it was time already and I had to get ready. After the surgery and some time in a wake up room I was brought back to my room and soon I was able to get up. Although I spent most of that day sleeping I felt so much better the next day and hardly had any pain. After that I was pain free and didn’t need any pain medication. I was even able to take long walks in the vicinity of the hospital.
I had no complications or any problems at all. Now, 6 month after my surgery, I feel very good, I lost 30kg and hope to lose much more over time. But I don’t stress over it because my quality of life is so much better than I ever expected it to be. My back and knee pain is gone and I am more mobile than I was in the last 10 years. Actually, I feel 10 years younger.
All my thanks go to Dr. Kaur, Merle and the entire team at the hospital who took such good care of me.
The best decision I’d made last year was to travel to Estonia for my gastric bypass surgery. The service I’d received from Merle was a clear indication of how my journey was going to be. She was courteous, responsive and empathetic. She arranged for me to speak to Dr. Kaur at my request. I had so many concerns and questions; Dr. Kaur patiently listened and was very forthcoming with his responses.Read full story
On arrival to Estonia, everything went as planned. At the hospital, the nurses were so kind and attentive. Dr. Kaur was amazing! He took the time to explain the procedure to me before the surgery and gave me the opportunity to ask as many questions as I wanted to. After the surgery, and every day I was at the hospital, he visited twice! He is truly an asset to the hospital and clearly enjoys what he does!
I have since lost over 20kg since my surgery and am in the best shape of my adult life!
My personal experience is very good, everything was very professional at the hospital. The dr and nurses, everybody were helpful and very nice. I feel so much better now, although I’m not at my goal weight yet. I would recommend Bariatric Services to anyone who is considering surgery.Read full story
I have been doing very well, weight loss is 25 kilos so far. No complications whatsoever, I can tolerate almost any food and try to make healthy choices 🙂
I had blood test done in december and all was good, I will have another one in the end of may, and have everything checked out again.
The surgery has changed my life to the better, I dont regret it one minute, and can hardly remember the first hardest weeks, they went by so quick.
Hi! I have been obese from the age of six. Around my sixties I ended up to 125kg and my back, feet and ankles started to protest. I always ( until christmas 2017) thought that bariatric surgery is nothing for me. Started to study the new methods: could I possibly make such a radical change in my life and take all the risks of complications? Be the girl who never eats more than one slice of pizza, if any? The process before surgery was extremely simple compared to the process on public health care here in Finland. (And yes, I work at one of our University Hospitals with my overweight).Read full story
suddenly, it was April, I took the trip to Tallinn. Everything went perfectly well and here I sit on my sofa writing this, one week after the Sleeve-procedure. I congratulate myself of this decision … so far following the postop. instructios has been easy. I do not recommend this to anyone, BUT if you have made by yourself the decision and understand the consequenses. Just go for it! I’m feeling great! (-13kg from christmas, -5kg from the operation).
