What Are the Advantages of Getting a Gastric Sleeve in Poland?

If you're considering bariatric surgery, Poland has state-of-the-art clinics with weight loss specialists ready to treat you, as they do for countless other patients coming from abroad to make use of their expertise. Gastric sleeve surgery is offered by many reputable clinics and hospitals across the country, with surgeons performing the newest methods using the latest apparatus. Many international accreditation agencies have awarded their seal of approval to Polish clinics, exhibiting the impeccable standards you can find there.

Though high quality is usually associated with high costs too, in Poland you pay significantly less than you would at home without compromising on the level of surgical skill and overall care. Additionally, international patients often benefit from package deals, where accommodation and transfers are included in the price.

Which Types of Stomach Reduction Surgeries Are Performed in Poland?

Common procedures include gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy (which includes POSE 2), and gastric plication. Although Polish doctors are capable of performing all techniques, we find it more recommendable to book patients in for treatment types that are less invasive. But since stomach reduction surgery is aimed at reducing the size of the stomach and limiting food intake, what types of stomach reduction surgeries are there that are more gentle? Below are some popular non-invasive options offered in Poland:

Gastric Balloon

The gastric balloon is a non-surgical option in which an inflatable balloon is inserted into the stomach. This partially fills the stomach, reducing the feeling of hunger and inducing the feeling of being full quicker, which limits food intake. The balloon remains in the stomach for a specific period of time and is then removed.


POSE stands for 'Primary Obesity Surgery, Endolumenal' and is also a minimally invasive procedure. In this procedure, an endoscope is inserted through the mouth to reach the stomach wall. Then, using surgical instruments, the stomach wall is folded and sutured, reducing its size. This procedure does not require external incisions and therefore leaves no scars.

Swallowable balloon

The swallowable balloon is similar to the gastric balloon, but instead of being inserted endoscopically, the balloon is swallowed. Once it reaches the stomach, it is inflated with fluid to reduce the space available for food inside. This balloon is also removed after a certain period of time.

Are Polish Doctors Good?

The country's infrastructure is first-class, with top-tier professionals in every discipline. When it comes to bariatric surgery, Poland has some of the best surgeons who have been trusted by many international patients with the fitting of a gastric band. Poland trains its doctors to hold its medical system to global standards of modern medicine, which is why many Polish doctors are members of worldwide associations relating to their fields. This places them at the forefront of learning and innovation, bringing the newest methods and technologies into the country. Added to this, most doctors will keep expanding their knowledge with courses and certificates, to ensure they're providing the best care. It's also easy to find Polish doctors who also speak English, allowing them to serve patients from abroad.

How Easy Is It to Travel to Poland for a Gastric Sleeve?

Poland's major airports serve hundreds of international routes every day, receiving flights from everywhere around the world. You can fly directly to Poland from anywhere within Europe, which would only take two or three hours. The UK for example has carriers taking people to Poland multiple times a day, with every major airport also offering budget options to make the trip even better value. Just remember to check the travel requirements before booking; EU citizens can enter Poland for as long as they wish, and UK citizens can stay for visits of up to 90 days without a visa.

Can I Travel to Poland Alone?

You'll get comprehensive care when getting your gastric sleeve in Poland, which means all the necessary aftercare in the immediate period following the surgery. Your surgeon will detail all the steps that will be taken to ensure your recovery, as well as what you will need to do. You can therefore travel alone for the procedure without having to worry about additional stresses. However, many patients wish to travel with someone else for support, which is something that can be arranged accommodation-wise whilst discussing your requirments. Adding a guest to your package can usually be done for a reasonable price.
