The service being tenfold better than I've ever had in the UK

5 50 Gastric Bypass

Nord was amazing throughout the whole process of getting my bypass from the initial contact with aurelia through to the aftercare I received. I can't recommend Nord enough they were amazing, for the price in comparison to UK prices being fantastic but also the service being tenfolds better than I've ever had in the UK also. Forever thankful to Nordbariatics for all they have done for me.

Jessica, thank you for your review!

Everything was well planned and the staff were lovely

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 6500 €

From the moment I made contact, I knew I was in good hands. Aurelija was my main contact and answered emails quickly and efficiently and on arrival last week everything had been perfectly planned for me, from pick up to COVID test, blood, ECG etc.

The clinic is modern and immaculate, it was pictures that I saw when researching that made me choose this clinic, as well as their very friendly Facebook group and reviews. Flying overseas for such a big op isn’t what I would have initially chosen but it was half the price of the UK, with a surgeon I had enormous confidence in and a clinic cleaner than any you would find in the UK.

Meeting the surgeon and the anaesthetist the day before adds to the reassurance, as does the non-judgementally welcome from when you walk in.

I was incredibly nervous on surgery day, again, everything was well planned and the staff were lovely. I had the gastric sleeve and when I came round I felt incredibly sick but was given lots of anti-sickness drugs and plenty of reassurance. I stayed 2 nights in the most comfortable hospital bed and received 1st class care (plus a few laughs) during this time.

I’m now 5 days out and fly back home tomorrow, I cannot express how delighted I am with Nord.

Jo, thank you! Wish you all the best!

The clinic is amazing. You’re a 5-star team

5 50 Gastric Bypass

I have struggled with weight all my life. Nord gave me a chance to restart healthier than ever with a Gastric Bypass. One week in Lithuania it’s all it takes. The surgery is very simple (or they make it look very simple. My journey is just starting and it’s not an easy one but hopefully it will be easier with time. No regrets!

The clinic is amazing. You’re a 5-star team! Thank you to Dr Malekas, the nurses (I love you Aurora), Vita, Laura, Santa, the ladies that drove us everywhere Renata and Irina amazing and, of course, Aurelija who provides immediate and helpful assistance whenever needed.

Everything was very well organised, executed and the care shown by all was second to none

Gastric Bypass • Paid: 6 €

On 13/10/18 I had a gastric bypass. On waking from the anaesthetic and over the following few hours I only suffered mild discomfort in my upper torso which was manageable with paracetamol. In fact, I had to question whether they had done the operation as I felt so well.

My experience was awesome from the moment of contacting the clinic to the time I was dropped off at the airport by the clinic's driver. Everything was very well organised, executed and the care shown by all was second to none.

The clinic was stunning, spotlessly clean, small, intimate and every single member of the staff was happy, polite and caring. Nothing was too much. When the call bell was rung, they were there within seconds. Everything that could be done was done to ensure my comfort. In short, the patient Care was exemplary. I will be returning for my mummy makeover in about a year.

I would recommend to anyone without a second thought. A huge thank you to each and every one of you at Nordbariatric. You're awesome.

Our surgery has gone very well, our recovery and weight loss have been excellent

5 50 Gastric Sleeve • Paid: 5500 €

My wife and I both had Sleeve WLS approximately 10 days ago. I must say that from our initial contact through consultation, surgery and aftercare we have had the most fantastic service. Our surgery has gone very well, our recovery and weight loss have been excellent.

I cannot recommend this clinic enough. The care we have received far outstrips even private care in the UK. The team are friendly as well as knowledgeable. Everything has been well explained, all our questions have been answered with professionalism and empathy. The actual care pre and post op was exceptional and the nursing team as well as the surgeon we amazing.

The whole experience was great. I couldn't recommend this place highly enough

5 50 Bariatric Surgery Consultation • Paid: 6352 €

I contacted the team after look on the internet and finding this place was a good price. I then began researching the clinic as I was wary of it being abroad. I found loads of good reviews and success stories. I read of how welcoming the team were and helpful. I joined the facebook page and asked genuine patients about their experience and got a lot of good feedback from there.

The whole experience was great! I couldn't recommend this place highly enough. The team was lovely, picked me and my partner up from the airport then took us back and to from the clinic for appointments then back to the hotel. All staff spoke good English. My appointment was all on the same day and one after the other so no waiting around. I was given clear instructions on everything and my opinion was always taken into account. The nurses were very caring and empathetic and were always there when you needed them or pressed the buzzer.

Bariatric Surgery Consultation

from 4200 €

Gastric Band

An adjustable gastric band, often called the band, is a bariatric surgery which helps patients lose as much as 40 percent of their excess weight. It is a minimally invasive, reversible and adjustable procedure. Food consumption is decreased by placing a silicone device (the so called band) around the top portion of the stomach. Its tightness can be adjusted by inflation or deflation through a port that is placed subcutaneously in the stomach.

from 6150 €

Gastric Bypass

A gastric bypass is one of the techniques used in bariatric surgery and is done not only to kick-start  the weight loss process, but also to prevent or treat health problems that are associated with excess weight. Even though obesity has been prevalent for ages, only recently has it been recognised as a disease of multifactorial origin. The first attempts to treat obesity for the sole purpose of weight loss began in 1950s, when jejunoileal bypasses were done to induce a state of malabsorption (a condition when nutrient absorption is impaired). Despite reaching desired weight loss results, the procedure had too many post–operative complications to be deemed successful. The gastric bypass was developed years later, in the 1960s. The surgical technique went through numerous modifications in order to decrease the number of complications and is now one of the most frequently performed bariatric surgeries worldwide.

Gastric Plication

Weight loss surgery is currently known as the most effective overweight and obesity management strategy. Moreover, it has been recently acclaimed as having long-lasting positive effects on patient’s metabolic properties and general well-being. Gastric plication is a relatively new and promising restrictive technique which involves folding the stomach into itself at the greater curvature in order to reduce gastric volume. It is a minimally invasive procedure since no gastric or intestinal resection is performed. Rapid and prolonged results are achieved by preserving the durable plication folds with one or two rows of nonabsorbable sutures or staples.

from 6150 €

Gastric Sleeve

Gastric sleeve surgery, or a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, is a surgical procedure during which a part of the stomach is removed leaving the remaining part to function as a new smaller stomach. The stomach is an organ which functions as a temporary food reservoir and it also produces hormones, such as gastrin and ghrelin. Ghrelin is associated with the feeling of hunger. Therefore, the removal of a large portion of the pouch can favorably alter the hunger hormone production. After a gastric sleeve procedure a patient’s food intake is decreased and they feel full faster. It is a bariatric surgery, which helps patients to lose as much as 50 to 70 percent of their excess weight.

Revisional Bariatric Surgery

Going through a relapse is a possibility, even though not a common one, for patients who have gone through bariatric (also known as weight loss) surgery. Such cases require weight loss revision surgery to help patients either lose weight again or fix any other associated issues. There are multiple factors that may contribute to one putting the weight back on, including changes in attitudes and habits, anatomical reasons (such as one’s stomach stretching out) or specific instances of the bariatric technique losing its effect over time. Additionally, it may simply be a case of the patient’s body not responding well to the treatment. Nonetheless, sometimes revision surgery is performed due to medical complications rather than putting the weight back on: the formation of ulcers, scar tissue or problems with absorbing nutrients.

Gallbladder Removal

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is the gold standard technique for treating gallbladder diseases in both acute and elective surgery, when gallbladder, a pear-shaped sac situated on the inferior surface of the liver, is removed. Anatomically gallbladder is divided into fundus, body and neck, which is linked to the bile ducts. Its main function is to store and collect bile which plays an important role in fat digestion and absorption, and serves as a means for excreting several important waste products from blood, such as bilirubin, an end product of hemoglobin destruction, and cholesterol excess. Gallbladder removal surgery is commonly performed when there is an inflammation present inside the gallbladder causing moderate to severe pain and directly affecting the quality of a patient’s life.

Hernia Repair

A hernia is a protrusion of an organ through the weakest part of the muscles or connective tissue of the abdominal wall. Hernias are provoked by a combination of factors – increased intra-abdominal pressure and the weakness of the abdominal wall muscles or fascia. Therefore, the main risk factors associated with hernias are obesity, pregnancy, chronic cough or constipation, connective tissue disorders, as well as older age, smoking, family history of hernia and physical exertion.
