Vilnius, Lithuania -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/15/2018 -- Weight loss surgery abroad is becoming more popular ever since the medical breakthrough was offered to the public. Some people are not genetically designed to lose weight as easily as others, and because surgery is expensive, most choose to go abroad for weight loss surgery. This helps them feel and look better without having to spend a fortune.

Although not that many people realize this, weight loss surgery abroad price is significantly lower in some European countries which makes it extremely attractive especially for people living in the UK and the Scandinavian countries. Weight loss surgery complications are not common and to keep the risk at a minimum, patients need to stay in the hospital for 2 days after the surgery – this is the only downside of going abroad for such a surgery.

"I never thought that I would be able to afford a weight loss surgery because of its cost. I'm glad I stumbled upon Kardiolita Hospital in Lithuania while doing some online research. I immediately had a conversation with the staff and booked a complete package over the weekend." - says Melinda Wills, a secondary school teacher from Southampton, UK. She flew in on a Thursday night and was back home after the weekend. She quickly recovered after a few weeks and is back on her regular routine.

"Our weight loss surgery is performed using a laparoscopic technique. A video camera and instruments are inserted through several small incisions so the abdominal cavity stays intact. This technique is very effective and loved by patients." - says Kardiolita Hospital CEO Andrius Kostogriz. Patients of Kardiolita Hospital enjoy no waiting times, with surgery scheduled at their most convenient time.

At Kardiolita Hospital, weight loss surgery is performed by surgeons having 15+ years of experience in performing gastric operations daily. Patients choosing Kardiolita Hospital for their weight loss surgery save up to 75% while getting world-class medical services, which is a huge deciding factor for patients from abroad.
