Reviewed 04 October 2012 "Excellent"
"Treatment went great. I was able to get up and move about a few hours after surgery and I was able to eat/drink up to 4-6 oz of water/liquid food. The Hospital has the best broth/soup I have ever tasted! Anyway, The surgeon has an amazing bedside manner which is something that I was told about in advance before booking with International Surgery Group and he has excellent English, as do most of the doctors and nurses. My surgery took less than an hour to complete! I was fit enough to check out of the hospital the day after my Gastric Bypass and I stayed in one of the Hotels recommended my this surgery organisation and both my husband and I were delighted because they even have a special "Post-Surgery Menu" for the patients of ISG and we got the room on a discount also because we booked through ISG. All in all I paid €7,400 for my Gastric Bypass, my Hotel cost me €270 for 3 nights and my flights to Belgium cost me €65 return for both my husband and myself. I also took the ISG Insurance which was an extra €290 so my total spend was €8,025. for the same procedure in the UK I would have to pay over €18,000.00 There is no comparison. These people are fantastic and I would strongly recommend them to anybody considering this type of surgery."
Dr Bruno Dillemans responded to this review:

Dear Sienna, Thank you for your kind review. It was our pleasure to be able to assist you. We are delighted to hear that the staff of the Boterhuis Hotel looked after you so well and We will make sure to pass on your kind comments to them when we next visit with them. Dr Dillemans also thanks you for your kind remarks. If the team here at ISG can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to get in touch. It would be nice to hear of your progress. With our sincerest best wishes for the future. The Bariatric Team International Surgery Group

Reviewed 29 April 2016 "highly recommend International Surgery Group"
"I haven't yet had my surgery but so far the whole process from application for surgery to acceptance has been incredible. The whole surgery package is awesome. A staff member by the name of Garrett has been so kind, helpful and thorough with every aspect of my application. Everything has been sorted for me, all I need to do is turn up on the day ! A truly amazing and easy process and can't wait for the next part of this amazing journey. So far I'd definately highly recommend International Surgery Group."

Reviewed 06 December 2015 "I will be glad to go back to."
"Gastric bypass surgery. After years of suffering from overweight. -and trying every diet that exists on tthe globe - I decided for a more radical approach. After researching the subject I decided to go for the gastric bypass surgery with Dr. Dillemans in Brugge. I have just arrived back home and I am writing to tell you about it. Everything was organized perfectly by Mr Roche from the International Surgery Group. He was a patient companion to this process. I am sure I couldn't have done it without him. Dr. Dillemans was great, so warm and kind. The hospital was excellent. The staff are so gentle, kind, professional, and polite. Finally, the hotel was lovely too. Definitely a place I will be glad to go back to."

Gastric Band
€5200  -  €6200
Gastric Band (40 mins)

The Gastric Band is used for weight reduction for patients with obesity, with a Body Mass Index of at least 30 with one or more obesity-related comorbid conditions.It is indicated for use only in adult patients who have failed more conservative weight reduction alternatives, such as supervised diet, exercise and behaviour modification programs. Patients who elect to have this surgery must make the commitment to accept significant changes in their eating habits for the rest of their lives.

€6200  -  €7200
Gastric Band Revision (40 mins)

After Lap Band patients may need revision weight loss surgery for a number of reasons. The Lap Band could slip leading to a slow chronic condition or an acute condition requiring emergency surgery. Both circumstances ultimately lead to the Lap Band not functioning the way it should. While each circumstance is different, treating these issues may require removing the Lap Band, repositioning the Lap Band or replacing the Lap Band all together. Removing the Lap Band obviously opens the door for potential weight regain.

Gastric Bypass
