Francisco’s story

All my teenage life I was living and breathing basketball. However, my education suffered a lot because of it. Once I hit 16 years old, I had to catch up academically and gave up all my sports. This is when my weight started spiralling out of control. I’ve tried many different diets, but I’d soon give up and starting a new one became harder and harder. Even though I’m only 36 years old, I was feeling very tired very quickly, the excess weight was causing constant pains in my knees and feet. My two sisters had bariatric bypass surgeries and I could see how their lives, physical and mental health have improved immensely. I knew I had to do something quickly to improve my health, happiness and future.

Before the surgery

I’ve researched all possible options and came across dr. Antanas Mickevicius, one of the leading surgeons in this field in Europe. His experience, attention to detail, care and passion for his patients to succeed gave me confidence and trust to make this important step and give myself into his caring hands.

My NEWMAN Bariatric experience

The choice to change my life with NEWMAN Bariatric Clinic help was probably one of the best in my life. The hospital, health and care teams exceeded all my expectations with their knowledge, information provided, attention to details, latest equipment and personalised care before, during and after the surgery. During my trip and stay I felt safe, comfortable and looked after.

After the surgery

Although it’s only few weeks after the surgery, I can feel how my life is already changing for the better. My eating habits are under control, I already feel more energetic and experience less pain. This operation has given me a new chance in life to live better, healthier and happier.

Thank you for everything

From the start, my surgery coordinator Paule helped me with any concerns I had. I was anxious as I had never been to Lithuania but Paule was understanding every step of the way. She organised all of my appointments too which made the experience less stressful.

When I got to the clinic, the doctors and nurses were helpful and lovely. My bariatric surgeon Antanas Mickevicius explained everything to me and took the time to sit down and check in on me until i was discharged. I felt and still feel confident in my decision.

The surgery went great and I feel good post op!

I really recommend Newman Bariatric Clinic.

Thank you for everything.

I was out of bed the next day
and recovery so far has been swift

I travelled from the UK to have revision surgery from a Gastric Plication to a Gastric Bypass. I had contacted several clinics and despite mentioning revision surgery on the websites, none of them seemed keen when I asked for further details.

I received a very fast response from coordinator who helped me throughout the process. The week I was due to fly to Lithuania, the UK got added to the list of countries which required visitors to undergo 14 days isolation due to COVID-19 levels. Coordinator helped to make sure that I had somewhere to isolate and that the surgery still went ahead. She filled out all of the government forms due to isolation and arranged all of the transport required.

Prof Antanas Mickevičius is a highly skilled surgeon. He explained the different options for the revision surgery beforehand and gave me a choice if he found issues from the previous operation. I was out of bed the next day and recovery so far has been swift.

I feel like
a new person

I travelled from England to Lithuania February 2019 for my gastric sleeve, I was a nervous wreck as expected, I was met at the airport by a very friendly driver from the hospital who drove me to my hotel. My manager was amazing she was available on her mobile phone for any concerns from me booking my procedure to coming home, her customer care skills are excellent and was by my side through my hospital stay, and still available now 17 months down the line if needed regarding any post-op problems. Surgeon Antanas Mickevičius and his nursing team were excellent, caring, and gave 100 per cent patient care 24 hours a day, I can’t thank them enough, surgeon was available at any time during my stay and even came to see me in the middle of the night post-op. The hospital was amazing, very clean, nursing care was tremendous I was treated like a queen. From pre-op to discharge, I couldn’t fault a thing. The only regret I have I didn’t do it years ago. I weighed 21 stone went I entered Lithuania and now I weigh 12 stone 7, I feel like a new person, my confidence is great, and thank you so much Dr. Antanas Mickevičius and all the people involve.

It was the best decision
I’ve ever made for myself

First of all I would like to say a big Thank You to Dr. Professor Antanas Mickevicius and his amazing team! I highly recommend this private clinic in Kaunas and Dr. Professor A. Mickevicius and all of his professional team for anyone who is looking for a gastric bariatric surgery done. It was the best decision I’ve ever made for myself, it’s like a dream come true and life changing thing in a good way! I feel amazing after all, my health is improving, and I started to get so many compliments from the people around me. It’s been 4 months since I have undergone the gastric bypass surgery and so far I have lost 25 kg from the very start of this journey.

I had obesity problems since I was 19 years old, I have tried many different weight loss pills, diets, personal meal plans, but after losing a little bit of weight, I was never successful to keep it off. I was nearly 40 years old when I decided to go for gastric bypass surgery. After some researches I decided to contact Dr. A. Mickevicius, because he is extremely professional, friendly and understanding, also the surgery package cost only 5000€, including some pre-op tests, consultation with professor A.Mickevicius, surgery by itself, aftercare and few days stay in a comfortable, very clean private room, consultation with dietitian and follow up.

All I had to do, was to get travel tickets to Lithuania, Kaunas and to find a hotel where to stay for a few days after the surgery. All this time, my surgery coordinator was very helpful and she guided me through and still is, she sent to me lots of information about the surgery, also she organised the first consultation with Dr. A. Mickevicius through Skype which I thought was very handy, time and money saving consultation, because I live in Ireland.

The clinic is modern and very clean. Only the best experience I had, and if any other people are having the same overweight problem which I had and want to make a life-changing – saving decision, I would highly recommend Dr. Professor Antanas Mickevicius and his amazing team.
