What is Bariatric and Weight Loss Surgery?

Bariatric, or weight loss surgery, is a surgical treatment for obesity. This surgery can be a life-changing procedure for patients who have suffered from obesity often for many years.

In Blackrock Clinic our world-class bariatric clinical service provides a multidisciplinary approach with the latest surgical techniques, medical technology and elite aftercare. Blackrock Clinic continues to be one of Ireland’s leading hospitals for weight loss surgery and our weight loss treatments have become some of the most sought after in the country.

Why Choose Blackrock Clinic for Weight Loss Surgery?

We believe the reasons to choose Blackrock Clinic for your weight loss surgery include our multi-disciplinary team approach, provision of modern robotic surgery and an unparalleled program of follow up care which helps you optimise your health as you recover.

While bariatric surgery is central to our patients’ weight loss journey, Blackrock Clinic has developed an individually tailored experience for our patients, with access to assessments with our nation-leading dietitians, physiotherapists, cardiologists, respiratory physicians, endocrinologists and psychologists. Our weight loss team are all committed to providing the best possible outcome for each of our patients.

In terms of technology, Blackrock Clinic boasts the Da Vinci Xi Robotic Surgical System. Our surgeon, Mr. William Robb, has developed a leading high volume robotic weight loss surgical programme. 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 surgery to our patients.
