Myra Dublin
Reviewed 02 April 2014 "I was never put under any pressure to sign up to anything straight away"
"I received a very pleasant welcome. The staff are extremely friendly and put my nerves very much at ease. The procedure that I consulted about was explained to me in very great detail. This was not a sales pitch and I was never put under any pressure to sign up to anything straight away. I was told to go home and think about everything that had been explained so that I could be definite that this is what I wanted."
Dr Ahmed Salman responded to this review:

Hi Myra, Firstly, on behalf of all the staff at Auralia, I would like to thank you for taking the time to review your recent experience in our facilities. It gives our entire team great satisfaction to hear such positive words regarding the treatment they provide all patients with. I have passed on these words to the entire team. Our philosophy within Auralia is to provide all patients with every bit of information regarding their desired procedure, both the good and bad, in order to allow them to make a more informed decision. Honestly and openness are a big part of our company, so its wonderful to hear that patients are experiencing that from all members of our team. Once again, thank you so much for your kind words. We look forward to welcoming you back to Auralia in the future!

Reviewed 31 March 2017 "I don't regret my decision"
"For a while I've been considering going for a Gastric removal overseas up until I heard about this clinic on the radio. I decided to book an appointment with them and the treatment was well worth my money as the results were great!

They were professional and this led me to become more relaxed. I would recommend this clinic to anyone who is interested and personally I don't regret not going overseas, very good clinic."
Anita Ireland
Reviewed 31 March 2017 "Everything went smoothly and gentle"
"I went for a Gastric band treatment and I must tell you that for this doctor it was no bother as it went very well. Everything went smoothly and gentle. The clinic itself was based locally which made it convenient for me and the price was within my budget as well.

Everybody was friendly, I was accommodated for right through my treatment and overall i'm delighted with the results."

Bariatric Surgery Consultation
If you are wishing to lose weight but you are unsure about what procedure may be best for you then our bariatric surgery consultation may be the best option for you. This consultation is completely free and there is absolutely no obligation to book your procedure with us. During the consultation we can discuss all available weight loss options and go over the costs of each of them along with explaining our 0% finance option. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you have and you will be sent home with our information packs to read over before making your decision on whether to book your procedure or not.
 
Gastric Balloon
Our gastric balloon program has proven results in helping our patients to kick start their weight loss or to shift those last few stones off. Our program includes a 1 year after-care program during which you will have regular follow up consultations with our weight loss team whilst also being educated on how to maintain your weight loss long term. You will also receive full nutritional guides, full exercise guides, 24/7 emergency phone support and full surgical cover whilst on the program.
 
Gastric Band
Our gastric band program is the number one long term weight loss program available. All of our surgeries are carried out in our own state of the art facilities in Dublin by our world renowned consultant bariatric surgeons. Following your gastric band procedure you are enrolled onto our comprehensive after-care program. You will receive full nutritional guides which covers all aspects of the foods you need to be eating whilst being worded in a way that is very easy to understand. You will also receive full exercise guidelines which will be incorporated into your program after you have lost some weight and once it is safer for you to engage in physical activity. You will have unlimited appointments with our weight loss team, providing motivation and ensuring that we can be depended upon by you. You will also have all adjustments/fills of your gastric band included on your after-care program. 


As standard, you will also receive 24/7 emergency phone support and full surgical cover for the entire duration of your program.


Typically, we would expect a weight loss of at least 5-6 stone within the first year of our program, however, we have many patients who have lost as much as 10 stone within this time. 

 
Gastric Band Adjustment
Have you had your gastric band surgery carried out by a different clinic? In some circumstances, we may be able to provide you with adjustments/fills of your gastric band.


All consultations are completely free.


Please contact a member of our weight loss team for more information.

Gastric Sleeve
 
Gastric Sleeve

Our gastric sleeve program has proven to be the mosteffective form of long term weight loss for many years for our patients. Ourprogram starts with your gastric sleeve procedure being carried out  in ourstate of the art, fully CHKS, NTPF and ISO accredited, private hospital inDublin by our expert bariatric surgeon.

Following the procedure, you will have lifetime after-carewith our weight loss team, including unlimited appointments and 24/7 emergencyphone support.

Typically, we would expect our patients to loseapproximately 6-7 stone (38-44kg) within the first year, however, this willvary from patient to patient depending on how strictly they stick to the givenguidelines. Many of our patients have lost as much as 11 stone (69kg) withinthe first year.

Here at Auralia Weight Loss Clinic we understand that thedecision to undergo any form of procedure is not one which can be made easily.We also understand that most of our patients prefer to have all the availableinformation before making this decision. For this reason, we offer all of ourgastric sleeve patients free consultations. During this consultation we candiscuss the procedure, the after-care program and the patient requirements infar greater detail whilst also ensuring that the patient is an appropriatecandidate for the procedure. There is no obligation to book the procedure withus during this consultation, it is more of an informal chat.

 
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty

Auralia, in conjunction with our world renowned Consultant Bariatric Surgeon, Mr. Jamie Kelly, are proud to be one of the first hospitals on the planet to pioneer a new non-surgical alternative to the gastric sleeve, the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG).


The endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is a new procedure for those who want the benefits of weight loss surgery, but from a less invasive, non-surgical procedure. It involves stapling the stomach from the inside to significantly reduce its capacity by about 80%. After the procedure, the stomach remains intact but has been stitched from top to bottom to leave a smaller banana shaped stomach through which the food you eat passes.

The major benefit of the endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty is that it is performed via endoscopy (through your mouth and down your throat). This means that unlike surgery, there is no cutting, no stapling, no scarring and no wounds! The procedure is carried out by our pioneering surgeon Mr Jamie Kelly, under general anaesthetic and usually takes 60-90 minutes.

The procedure works by reducing stomach capacity and slowing down the speed at which food passes into the bowel. The food you eat goes into a small pocket at the top of the stomach before working its way down through the reduced, banana shaped tube, and emptying into the bowel.  

The recovery period for patients who have undergone an ESG is 2-3 days. This is substantially lower than the 2 week recovery period for traditional gastric sleeve surgeries.



 
Revisional Bariatric Surgery
Our expert consultant bariatric surgeons have extensive experience in carrying out revisional bariatric surgery.


Revisional bariatric surgery involves either fixing a problem with the initial surgery that you had or converting the initial surgery that you had to a different bariatric procedure.


Our consultant bariatric surgeons have carried out a high number of these cases, varying from placing a gastric band around what was once a gastric bypass or sleeve, to converting a gastric band surgery to a gastric sleeve surgery.
