Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery at Blackrock Clinic

27th Apr 2022

The innovative work of Blackrock Clinic’s bariatric team has received some well-deserved attention in media recently, featuring in The Irish Daily Mail and The Sunday Independent

Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with the causes, prevention, and treatment of obesity. The main treatment of bariatric medicine is weight loss surgery, a life-changing procedure that requires world-class clinical service, medical technology and aftercare.

As Blackrock Clinic continues to be one of Ireland’s leading hospitals in these areas, our weight loss treatments have become some of the most sought after nationwide.

Blackrock Clinic boasts the Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System, which requires a highly-trained team of specialists. At the cost of €2.5 million, the Da Vinci system has catapulted Blackrock Clinic to the forefront of weight loss surgery and will continue to allow us to provide exceptional care to our patients.

Blackrock Clinic is also home to two of Ireland’s most distinguished bariatric and weight loss surgeons. Both Prof. Mayilone Arumugasamy and Mr. William Robb have played a vital role in the widespread success of bariatric surgery at the Blackrock Clinic. You don’t have to just take our word on their professionalism and dedication, you can take the word of their patients!

The benefits of effective treatment for morbid obesity are considerable. Weight loss surgery at the Blackrock Clinic can result in long-term remission for Type 2 diabetes, improved fertility, the correction of venous stasis disease, the elimination of obstructive sleep apnea, the lowering of cholesterol and significant psychological relief.

For two years after your surgery, you will also be provided with extensive dietary, psychological and physiological help from our specialists, ensuring that your weight loss journey exceeds your expectations. It is crucial for us that our patients know that we are here for them long after their procedure.

While weight loss surgery is a major step for anyone to consider, Blackrock Clinic’s excellence in the field makes it the place for you to start your journey. Our specialists are always on hand and they are more than happy to respond to all enquiries. If you are ready, then they are too.
