Dr. Rein Adamson is among the first surgeons who started performing bariatric surgeries in Estonia in 2004. He organized and invited a bariatric surgery specialist from abroad who performed the very first bariatric operation in Estonia, with dr. Rein Adamson assisting him. Dr. Adamson has been a part of The Health Clinic’s team since the very first days.
In addition to bariatric surgery, dr. Adamson is one of the most experienced post-bariatric surgeons in Estonia. Loose and excessive skin in the stomach, upper arms and thighs’ area that is formed due to vast weight-loss is tightened with post-bariatric surgery.
Also performing bariatric surgeries at The Health Clinic is dr. Martin Adamson who together with his father, dr. Rein Adamson, has done bariatric operations from 2011. Today dr. Martin Adamson has obtained a thorough experience in the field of bariatrics and he is performing surgeries on his own and with a steady hand.
Every bariatric surgery done in The Health Clinic (except gastric balloon) also includes the consultation and follow-up care by our bariatric nurse / nutritional specialist Anni Laas, who makes sure that our patients get a thorough and long term support on their weight-loss journey on nutrition, physical activity and the general lifestyle changes. Anni is one of the most experienced nutrition specialists for obesity in Estonia and her constant self-development and cooperation with other experts makes her one of the most adequate specialists in consulting patients who have undergone bariatric surgery.
Anni consults our patients face-to-face in the hospital after surgery, 6 months after surgery and via e-mail for a whole year. After the 12 month period she will make a summary of the patient’s results and provides additional recommendations if needed.
We believe that our program together with the best specialists-, individual solutions- and a thorough surveillance and counseling system ensures our patients with significant and long lasting results, also a big improvement of their quality of life.
There are a set of requirements to be considered for bariatric surgery. First of all your body mass index (BMI) must be over 27 to be considered for the gastric balloon, over 35 for gastric banding and gastric plication and over 40 for gastric sleeve and gastric bypass.
BMI is calculated by dividing an individual’s body weight in kilograms with the individual’s height squared in meters. We may consider you with a lower BMI if you are suffering from a chronic disease due to obesity or can show that you are struggling with your obesity.
Calculate your BMI
It is still recommended that all patients try to lose weight before the operation, using conservative methods (monitoring weight, physical exercise). Surgery is used when the above methods have failed to produce the expected results.
Bariatric surgery is only effective if you make the changes necessary in terms of your lifestyle and eating habits to insure that the weight stays off. So it is very important that you are serious about it and understand the implications of having surgery.
