Step 1: Confirm that you are eligible for weight loss surgery and that it is an appropriate form of treatment for you and that it is what YOU want
Step 2: Contact GBS/AOS now - 01179 623 028 - speak to Sally for more information

Remember - a gastric band, gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy means accepting long term personal change and it's most definitely not 'the easy way out'!
Have you succeeded in finding ways that definitely won't work?...............
Thomas Edison, when trying to create the light bulb, was asked, ďHow can you keep going after failing 10,000 times? Isnít that ridiculous? Why donít you just give up?Ē
Edison answered, ďYou donít understand, I havenít failed 10,000 times, Iíve simply succeeded in finding 10,000 ways that definitely wonít work.Ē
When we see others succeed we arenít usually privy to the associated failures or personal costs that accompanied that success.
Now move towards finding the way that WILL work for you.
