Gastric Band Abroad : Gastric Band in Europe
Increasing numbers of clinics offer Gastric Band Surgery. Gastric Band Abroad or Weight Loss Surgery are common searches on Google, we hope this page is both helpful and interesting. This page was written by Martin and Marion Shirran. With over 10,000 hours of clinical treatment time at their clinic in Spain, exclusively helping people achieve permanent weight loss, and as the authors of the best selling book Gastric Mind Band, published World Wide by Hay House, they not only know what they are talking about, but they may also be able to help you, achieve your dream.
Many people interested in the surgical weight loss option start by searching for Gastric Band Abroad, as they believe it to be a less expensive option than UK based treatment. However in many cases it does not end up that way.
When looking for surgical options outside of the UK, a long list appears of what looks at first to be inexpensive deals each offering to fit your Gastric Band Abroad or a Gastric Band in Europe, and of course much further afield, we recently had a client visit us who had travelled all the way to India for the treatment, changing her mind, at a significant cost to her on arrival. The obvious initial thoughts of those seeking the treatment abroad is that it is often less expensive, of course! But what if something should go wrong? What happens about post-op care? Will they still be in business in six or twelve months time? How qualified and experienced are the surgeons and the theatre team? Just how many of these procedures have they carried out? Would your insurance cover you if you were taken ill on the return flight ? Scare Mongering, no these are just a few of the very important questions and considerations that everyone should spend time thinking through. Though you won’t need to ask, or concern yourself about them, with certain other alternatives….more later…
The NHS might be the first point of access to have your Gastric Band Surgery, and favorable to the Gastric Band Abroad route, however for various reasons that’s not always possible: you may not have a sufficiently high BMI, or your local health authority may have particularly onerous criteria, or you may just want to speed things along. So you start looking into the prospect of having the operation to fit your Gastric Band, or other weight loss surgery elsewhere – having a gastric band abroad….But do be careful, the more time you invest in research at this stage the better, this is life changing stuff, not always reversible.
For starters, you’re faced with searching through hundreds of different websites for a suitable clinic; and with fees well into the thousands of pounds, it’s not surprising that some people choose the often cheaper, overseas option. Google “gastric band abroad ” and you’ll find them available in Europe, Eastern Europe, India; you name it, so many destinations.
Which raises issues like transport, insurance, language, and accommodation…. And where your health is involved, you really should ask all the right questions, not just some of them. Not only your surgeon’s qualifications, but also if the hospital or clinic is recognised by the country’s health authorities. Not only how many nights will you be staying, but also where will you be staying? Will you have nursing care? How will they deal with aftercare? Who covers the cost if complications occur during or immediately after the surgery especially if you are not able to travel home? Who will be there to help if something goes wrong? And crucially, with gastric band surgery, when where and by whom is the band filled – and of course at what cost, because there will be several sessions needed during the months following your procedure.
One additional point to be aware of relates to your European travel insurance, does it cover you for this type of a trip, it is worth while obtaining a letter from your insurance company ahead of booking, not only will this give you peace of mind, but it will also ensure there are no major financial issues during or after the trip.
Opting for a UK-based clinic might deal with some of these concerns, but of course the cost, side effects and risks of surgery remain, do ensure you are fully aware of the mortality rate associated with any and all forms of bariatric surgery. It is a medical fact that obesity increases the mortality rate, regardless of the surgery being performed. If you are seriously interested in taking control of your weight and you’re at the stage of considering going under the knife to get the desired result then we urge you stop right here, and spend ten minutes investigating a surgery-free, zero risk option: the respected Gastric Mind Band treatment. No surgery, no side effects, a fraction of the costs, already completed by over a thousand clients at the Elite Clinic in Spain alone, by both the general public and celebrities alike. Plus of course any follow-up assistance you need won’t be of the medical variety!
