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).
For more than 15 years I struggled with my weight. Considering that I’m only 31 years old 15 years is a long time. I tried every way to loose weight but always ended up gaining more. After I had my daughter in 2013 the weight gaining got completely out of control. In the summer of 2017 I was at my heaviest both physically and mentally and in July I finally admitted that I not only wanted help, I needed it.Read full story
After doing some research and talking to a friend with personal experience, Bariatric Services was the only place to go to in my opinion. Everything was so professional from the beginning. Their website was very informative and Kaire, the coordinator, answered all my questions personally and with respect.
September 5th 2017 is they day my new life began. That’s the day I had gastric bypass surgery performed by Dr. Ilmar Kaur. I was never nervous, not once. I was only excited and everyone took such a good care of me. Being a licensed practical nurse and now a nursing student I looked at everything at the hospital with different eye too and I can honestly say that everything was excellent both related to hygiene and professionalism. The staff was very helpful and kind and I felt very secure the whole time.
Dr. Ilmar was there when I came and showed me the hospital room, he then checked on me at least twice a day the whole time I was in the hospital. When discharged I got excellent patient education about life after surgery both from Dr. Ilmar and nurse Anni Laas and was ready to start my new life on my own – though I wanted to take everyone back to Iceland with me 🙂
Since I got back home I’ve been doing really well and have not experienced any complications. It’s now almost 8 months since the surgery and I have lost 35 kilos. I am only 5-7 kilos away from my ideal weight and that is something I thought I would never experience. I haven’t felt so good about myself in years and life is much more easier, both for me and the closest people around me.
I haven’t taken stomach medicine since I got back home but I took 40 mg of Esomeprazol daily before surgery because of bad acid reflux. I also do not need to take medicine for anxiety anymore. I was in high risk of getting diabetes type 2 but that’s not a problem now.
I can eat anything, really, but I now focus on meals as a nutrition so I choose my meals well. If I don’t do that it will result in less energy throughout the day and I don’t feel well physically. I also take vitamins daily, that’s really important and not as hard to remember as I thought it would be.
I now exercise because I want to and it’s a completely different feeling going to the gym and actually like it. I can also do things there that I could never do before. I can now sit on the floor playing with my daughter and run with her up and down stairs without having a hard time to breath.
I can not thank Dr. Ilmar Kaur and all of the Bariatric Services team enough. They will always have a special place in my heart and I will be forever grateful to them.
I have lost 21 kg and my weight is 72 kg. I am very happy with the results of the surgery and I feel great. I can eat everything without a problem. My experience with Bariatric Services is fenomenal both with the health care and counseling. You took care of me in all the steps of my journey. I would reccommend it to anyone to do their surgery with you.
In theory, I consider myself a super pro on weight loss, on losing and gaining weight J It’s because I struggled with my being overweight for 15 years.Read full story
I gained and lost weight dozens of times: losing 10 kg, gaining 15 kg. I knew very well how to lose weight by using diet and sport. And I knew how to hold it. But my problem was laziness. As soon as I lost weight, I failed to hold it: to celebrate the loss, I ate a lot and gained weight back.
It was 7 years ago, when I heard first about the stomach reduction surgery in a TV program, where there were very fat people. For them, this surgery was vital.
I made a final decision to go for the stomach reduction to lose weight in this way in 2013, after I met and talked to a friend who had undergone this surgery at Dr. Kaur’s clinic.
After meeting her, I signed up for a consultation with Dr. Kaur. I was 26 then and I weighed somewhere around 125 kg, although I’m pretty tall, 180 cm.
The surgery was appointed on 13 January 2015. During the New Year night, I certainly ate well, but after that I told myself to stop. Enough. And since 1 January, my new life has begun.
What in this entire saga helped me a lot in making a decision was the communication with people, who had already undergone this surgery. I also read all the forums and all the information on this issue on the Internet.
A month after the surgery, I lost about 10 kg.
As a result, a year and a half after the surgery, I have 47 kg off and I feel wonderful!
Today I’m not a full-figured girl looking at slim guys and dreaming. Now I’m a beautiful and slender girl, doing sports!
Now, when I am eating, my eyes play a major role. I know visually how much food I can accommodate. So I eat accordingly. If I eat a little more, I feel bad: food gets stuck in my throat. But this happens rarely – I get used to it. I eat whatever I want, but bit by bit.
If earlier, under stress, I immediately sat down and ate, now it’s the other way around. I do not want to eat.
Frankly speaking, my fondness for sweets persists. But today 2 to 3 candies are enough – I just don’t want more.
I’m very happy that I decided to take this step and underwent this surgery! I can wholeheartedly advise it to everyone, who has extra weight and who tried all the other ways.
Recently had a mini gastric bypass under Dr. Ilmar Kaur. I found Dr. Kaur to be an outstanding surgeon. The treatment I received well under his care was excellent. I can not recommend him highly enough. From my initial contact with Kaire the coordinator, I knew I was going to be in good hands. I traveled from Ireland and was in Estonia for 5 days. The first night was spent in a nice hotel in the centre of Tallinn and remaining nights in a private room in a private clinic. I was met at the airport etc. Dr. Kaur speaks fluent English and checked in on my twice a day during my hospital stay. Outstanding.
I am 10 days post bypass revision surgery and l cannot thank Dr. Ilmar Kaur and his bariatrics team enough. I traveled on my own for the surgery and they took incredible care of me. I cannot believe how well l feel after surgery and traveling home was painless. My scars are tiny and even after 10 days almost invisible. I cannot recommend him highly enough he is at the top of his game as far as surgeons are concerned. Superb, from start to finish.
I recently had bariatric revision surgery in Tallinn, Estonia, organised through Bariatric Services. I chose this company to go with because of the speedy response to my initial enquiry and then the very professional and organised way in which everything was dealt with.Read full story
Merle answered every question in detail in perfect English – explained what the different procedures might be and arranged for my mother to stay in the hotel while I was in Tallinn.
The hotel had a supermarket a couple of minute away and was only a few minutes walk from the Old Town for sightseeing. Merle met us at the airport as arranged and we were taken to the hotel for our overnight stay. The following morning we were picked up and taken to the hospital. The surgeon Ilmar Kaur was there to greet us and explain exactly what would happen and when. His English was extremely good as were one or two of the nurses so there was no problem in getting information at every point. I had a private room and with the exception of the endoscopy all the various tests were carried out in that room. Once he had seen what surgery was required it was carried out in the late afternoon and Dr Kaur telephoned my mother immediately afterwards to let her know how things had gone. He came in to see me at least twice every day and I could not fault his manner or his expertise. Additionally because I had the malabsorption surgery he explained that in the rare event that I did not lose the expected amount of weight he would perform further surgery for me at no extra charge. I was extremely happy with everything and am very grateful to Merle and Bariatric Services for arranging things for us so competently. I highly recommend them and would be happy to chat to anyone considering this service if they would like me to.
