About Christchurch Weight Loss Surgery

CWLS provides a range of services for obese patients requiring bariatric surgery for weight-loss and the good of their health. Our surgeons utilize the latest techniques, which, when combined with effective long-term patient management, can allow a person to manage their weight, improve their health and get control of their life.

Recognised by the World Health Organisation as an Epidemic, obesity can seriously affect an individual’s quality of life and often leads to serious health issues.

A decision to have bariatric surgery is not to be taken lightly. All decisions about any obesity surgery must be made in consultation with a surgeon or General Practitioner.
