Conversion surgeries at The Hospital Group

Has previous weight loss surgery not helped you achieve the results you’d hoped for?

Conversion surgery could be suitable for you if you’ve experienced problems with your gastric band, such as slippage, or difficulty maintaining weight loss after surgery. It’s also suitable for people who haven’t lost as much weight as they’d hoped to from other types of weight loss surgery.

Whatever your situation, conversion surgery could be an effective way to bring your weight loss goals back within reach.

Converting gastric band to gastric bypass

A gastric-band-to-gastric-bypass conversion is one of the options we offer at The Hospital Group for patients who haven’t reached their weight loss goals with a gastric band.

A gastric-band-to-gastric-bypass conversion helps further reduce hunger pangs and calorie absorption, so you can’t eat as much as before and won’t feel as hungry. The process involves removing the gastric band, creating a small stomach pouch and rerouting the small intestine.

To learn more about whether a gastric bypass conversion could be right for you, speak to our weight loss surgery experts. We’ve helped thousands of patients achieve their weight loss goals over almost three decades.

Converting gastric band to gastric sleeve

If your gastric band hasn’t helped you maintain your weight loss like you’d hoped, conversion from a gastric band to a gastric sleeve could be an effective alternative.

Gastric band to gastric sleeve conversion is suitable for patients who have had difficulties with their band or who need extra help maintaining weight loss following gastric band surgery.

A gastric-band-to-gastric-sleeve conversion helps to reduce appetite, meaning you’ll feel fuller sooner and eat less as a result. It’s a non-reversible procedure that reduces the size and capacity of the stomach by about 75%, also removing the part of the stomach that stimulates the appetite hormone, ghrelin.

We understand that opting for a permanent procedure like a gastric band to gastric sleeve conversion requires thorough consideration. If it’s something you’re thinking about, speak to one of our highly experienced bariatric team. We’ll explain exactly what the procedure involves and the results you can expect so you can decide whether it is right for you.
