With an English-speaking Bariatric Programme Co-ordinator and specialist bariatric nurse, the team at Bariatric Services are committed to supporting their patients throughout their treatment journey, not only for the time that they are in Estonia, but also when they return home.  Recognising that bariatric surgery is just the first step towards a new, healthier life, they provide a 5-year programme of follow-ups with the surgeon and a dietician as part of their standard surgical package.

Bariatric Services’ surgical procedures take place in one of two modern hospitals in Tallinn: The North Estonia Medical Centre and Private Hospital Fertilitas.

One of Estonia’s top health care providers, The North Estonia Medical Centre (NEMC) is a large regional hospital with excellent facilities. Bariatric surgeries are performed in the new X Wing of the NEMC, a totally digitised, contemporary and logistically efficient building that offers the highest possible standards of safety. Hospital’s personnel speaks English and bariatric patients cared for by trained bariatric nurses with a specialist bariatric surgeon on-call 24/7. The hospital is highly experienced in the treatment of high-risk bariatric patients.

For patients who choose to travel with a family member, Bariatric Services also offer surgery at Private Hospital Fertilitas, the largest private hospital in Estonia, with four operating theatres and an intensive care centre. The hospital’s private double rooms mean that a companion can stay overnight, although accommodation is also available in the 4 star Viimsi SPA hotel nearby.
