Safest Weight Loss Surgery for Britons Travelling Abroad

Share Article

Due to the financial pressures on the UK National Health Service, the vast majority of patients who are urgently in need of Obesity Surgery are forced to pay privately for their operations.

Searching for the right option for private surgery can be difficult, and sometimes confusing. Prices vary enormously, as does the extent of care and support offered before, during and after surgery. Making the right choice when dealing with something as important as major surgical procedures is vital. Cost, though important, is only one factor when deciding where to go for safe surgery.

Dr. Michal Cierny PhD, the Chief Surgeon at the BMI Clinic in Brno, Czech Republic and a highly regarded Bariatric Surgeon specialising in Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy and Laparoscopic Gastric Banding, has announced that he will co-operate exclusively with Cosmetic Bliss for all English-Speaking patients, recognising their commitment to safety and patient care.

"It is most important to me that Bariatric patients are fully informed of the risks and benefits of surgery, that they have an understanding of the surgical procedures involved, and that, as far as possible, detailed checks as to their suitability for surgery have been completed before they arrive at the clinic for the in-depth pre-operative medical assessment. To have the best chance of successful long term weight loss, patients also need to have on-going support and contact, to help them through the process. I have worked closely with Cosmetic Bliss over the last 18 months, and know their approach to all aspects of patient care is excellent. Deborah from Cosmetic Bliss spends a great deal of time with the English patients here in my Clinic; fully informing them and reassuring them, enabling them to feel at ease when having surgery outside their home country. This is a valuable service to them, and to me. Pre-operatively Cosmetic Bliss does everything possible to ensure patients are fully prepared for surgery, and they provide me with detailed medical information on each patient to enable me to make an informed decision on suitability for surgery. Post-operatively they support and monitor patients, and enable me to keep the detailed records on Weight Loss and co-morbidities I require for purposes of evaluation. For these reasons I have decided to co-operate exclusively with Cosmetic Bliss in bringing English-Speaking patients to my Clinic. I am delighted to have them as partners, as they share my own aims of safe and successful Bariatric Surgery."

Michael Dermody of Cosmetic Bliss said, "We feel honoured by the trust and recognition Dr Cierny and his clinic have shown us, and believe that we can continue to provide our patients with extremely safe, supportive and competitively priced Obesity Surgery at the BMI Clinic. We fully understand that travelling abroad for surgery can be daunting, and hope that the very personal service we give our patients allows them to feel secure and confident in their choice, and to be successful in their post-operative weight loss. We also welcome dialogue on co-operation from other companies promoting Weight Loss Surgery who wish to take advantage of the levels of patient care and service we and Dr. Cierny provide."
