Gastric Band Abroad : Gastric Band in Europe

Gastric Band Abroad
Medical tourism includes getting a Gastric Band abroad.

Increasing numbers of clinics offer Gastric Band Surgery. No longer restricted to the UK, now, inexpensive deals are available offering to fit the Gastric Band Abroad and Gastric Band in Europe, and of course further afield. The obvious questions? It’s often much cheaper, of course! But what if something goes wrong? What happens about post-op care? How qualified and experienced are the surgeons and the theatre team? Just how many of these procedures have they carried out? Questions you won’t need to ask, or concern yourself about, with certain other alternatives….

The NHS might be the first point of access to have your Gastric Band Surgery, but for various reasons that’s not always possible: you may not have a sufficiently high BMI, or your local health authority may have particularly onerous criteria, or you may just want to speed things along. So you start looking into the prospect of having the operation to fit your Gastric Band elsewhere – having a gastric band abroad….But do be careful, the more time you invest in research at this stage the better.

For starters, you’re faced with searching through hundreds of different websites for a suitable clinic; and with fees well into the thousands of pounds, it’s not surprising that some people choose the often cheaper, overseas option. Google “gastric band abroad ”  and you’ll find them available in Europe, Eastern Europe, India; you name it, many destinations.

Get your Gastric Mind Band abroad.

Which raises issues like transport, insurance, language, and accommodation…. And where your health is involved, you really should ask all the right questions, not just some of them. Not only your surgeon’s qualifications, but also if the hospital or clinic is recognised by the country’s health authorities. Not only how many nights will you be staying, but also where will you be staying? Will you have nursing care? How will they deal with aftercare? Who covers the cost if complications occur during or immediately after the surgery and you are not able to travel home? Who will be there to help if something goes wrong? And crucially, with gastric band surgery, when where and by whom is the band filled – and of course at what cost, because there will be several sessions needed during the months following your procedure.

One additional point to be aware of relates to your European travel insurance, does it cover you for this type of a trip, it is worth while obtaining a letter from your insurance company ahead of booking, not only will this give you peace of mind, but it will also ensure there are no major financial issues during or after the trip.

Opting for a UK-based clinic might deal with some of these concerns, but of course the cost, side effects and risks of surgery remain, do ensure you are fully aware of the mortality rate associated with any and all forms of bariatric surgery. If you are seriously interested in taking control of your weight and you’re at the stage of considering going under the knife to get the desired result then we suggest you stop right here, and investigate an alternative surgery-free, zero risk option: the respected Gastric Mind Band treatment. No surgery, no side effects, less cost, and any follow-up assistance you need won’t be of the medical variety!

The Gastric Mind Band procedure has attracted considerable media interest around the world: the therapy has become something of a phenomenon on both sides of the Atlantic, developing into the treatment of choice by members of the public and celebrities alike. The procedure is now the subject of the book, The Gastric Mind Band, published by Hay House.

Gastric Mind Band clients benefit from the considerable research and development that went into the GMB method. The developers, and trademark owners, Martin and Marion Shirran, have now built up more than eight thousand one to one clinical hours, over the past ten years, working with people who fly to the clinic from around the world, each determined to achieve their ideal body weight.  At the end of the GMB treatment, each client leaves the clinic with his or her own set of carefully prepared tools, most are completely unique to the GMB, including a very extensive manual, and a set of digitally produced hypnosis / audio sessions.

At the Gastric Mind Band clinic located in Southern Spain, we are totally committed to client follow-up, and on-going research and development. We are proud that we offer the most thorough answer to those wanting to escape from the roller-coaster world of yo-yo dieting, in order to establish a permanent solution to their weight problems.
