Gastric Band Adjustments (fills and de-fills)
We offer a full Band Adjustment Service within our normal weekday surgery hours. We also offer a supportive follow up service with links to experienced dieticians and bariatric psychologists if appropriate. We are also able to refer to bariatric surgeons if specialist help is required.
Please call our Receptionists on 0208 861 1221 (choosing “0”) to make a band adjustment appointment with Dr Ian Chait or Dr Jane Woyka. Both doctors have been trained in providing post-bariatric surgery patient aftercare by well known bariatric surgeons. We are also able to give advice to those who are thinking about having weight loss surgery and would like to discuss their options with an experienced well informed general practitioner.
We are pleased to offer this service to any patients who may have had weight loss surgery either in the UK or abroad. We are conveniently located for anyone traveling from Central London.
New patients are asked to bring as much information as possible, including details of the type of band they have had fitted and any previous adjustments they have had.
- When you attend for a consultation it is for advice. We may feel that it is inappropriate to carry out a band adjustment on that day for a number of reasons including not having all necessary information about you for example if the band was put in abroad. If that is the case we will help you to understand what you need to do which may mean obtaining further information or having an X-Ray. The consultation will however still be chargeable although we may use our discretion to reduce the cost if not all the booked time has been utilised.
- We do not offer a first fill service, the first fill should be carried out by the surgeon who installed the band.
We do not carry out fills on a Friday or Saturday.
- New patients must bring information about the type of band they have had fitted, any adjustments they have had, and as much other information as possible that they have relating to their band.
