Tier 4 Weight Management (Bariatric Surgery)

Tier 4 Weight Management (Bariatric Surgery)

The bariatric service at Musgrove Park Hospital has been running since 2003. It is the largest obesity and metabolic surgery service in the South West, performing approximately 250 operations a year.

The health outcomes of people with obesity can be improved by changes in lifestyle, medication and surgery. The Tier 3 medical team and the Tier 4 multidisciplinary teams work closely to carefully assess each individual and tailor a treatment plan to optimise an individual’s health by weight loss, careful treatment of other associated conditions and, if appropriate, prepare them for surgery in the safest possible environment.
