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.

Your health is their main priority
and I felt that from the get-go

I went to this clinic for bariatric surgery didn’t know what they would find as I had a band removed (fitted and removed in UK) I picked this clinic after researching the surgeon Mr Mickevicius who also works in the UK and was registered with GMC. Pre-surgery I had unlimited contact with manager who answered my million questions and booked me taxis and hotel. I had a face time session with the surgeon and we discussed my options and thought process behind why and what I wanted. When I went to clinic I had no idea what to expect and I did think “why am I doing this” but after visiting the clinic was at ease. I met my manager who was superb and talked me through what was happening I had blood taken weight taken an ECG and an endoscopy. After that to a bedroom in the clinic where I met the surgeon and we went through my surgery choices. My anaesthetist came in lovely young lady talked me through what she was going to do and put me at ease before she knocked me out for my op. I then went through for my surgery and woke up back in my room. I had plenty of checks from the nursing staff who are extremely caring.

The surgeon came to say all went well and I got the surgery of my choice. I stayed two nights in the hospital and Mr Mickevicius would check in on me and also call up the staff to ensure my recovery. After I was checked up I was released and went to my hotel but decided to go a little walk. I felt tired but I was in no pain, in fact, less pain than when I had my band in the UK. I received texts from my manager checking up on me to ensure I wasn’t overdoing it and that I was ok. I had surgery on monday flew back the Saturday and still in contact with the team. The whole process was easily understood there were lots of discussions it was not just a transaction. The cost of this surgery is half price of the UK this was not my main driver for going abroad. When I had my band fitted in the UK and it failed the NHS bounced me around not wanting to touch anything as it was done privately albeit an NHS surgeon it was bonkers.

Without hesitation, I would recommend this clinic surgeon and team. The clinic is immaculate the team professional and the service exceptional. Your health is their main priority and I felt that from the get-go. I am 5 weeks post op down 25lbs 2 dress sizes off 2 high bp meds and wounds all healed. I still contact my nutritionist with questions which he responds to quickly. A big thank you to the team.

A highly qualified physician /
surgeon who clearly cares about
his patients

Very professional and efficient. All administrative issues were taken into account and post operative care was provided by a comprehensive, compassionate and caring medical team. Surgery was performed by Professor Antanas Mickevičius, a highly qualified physician / surgeon who clearly cares about his patients. In short, couldn’t have asked for better service and surprisingly cost effective when compared to vendors in Asia and others in Europe. Excellent result for my gastric sleeve and again, couldn’t be happier with the results.

The very attentive doctor
explained what he was
going to do and answered
all our questions

Everything went well – from the reception at Kaunas airport, the next day all preoperative exams were well organized, as was the stay at the clinic. A friendly young woman welcomed us and accompanied us in the clinic from one appointment to another. The very attentive doctor explained what he was going to do and answered all our questions. Before the surgery we also had the visit of an anesthetist, asking questions about allergies etc. After the operation, we visited a nutritionist doctor who explained everything extensively and gave us a brochure on dieting after surgery. The nurses were also very attentive.

Surgery went smoothly
and aftercare was
absolutely brilliant

I was struggling to lose weight all my life and made a decision to have a weight loss surgery.

I was looking for a clinic in the UK, but since the price was quite high I’ve decided to shop around abroad and came across Newman Bariatric in Lithuania. On 2nd if August I had a Gastric Bypass surgery done by Prof. Antanas Mickevičius.

I made an online enquiry and coordinator got in touch with me. Coordinator was amazing from the very first contact and answered all my questions and concerns.

Prof. Antanas Mickevičius was very friendly, observant, and understanding. Surgery went smoothly and aftercare was absolutely brilliant. He did an amazing job and I’m really thankful. Prof. Antanas Mickevičius and staff have the best customer service I have ever experienced!

I highly recommend Newman Bariatric to anyone seeking a first-class surgeon for weight loss surgery.

Excellent hospital
and first class service
from beginning to end

I never thought I would go through bariatric surgery. All my life I’ve been on diets, pills etc. On May 2017 I had my laparoscopic sleeve resection on my stomach. Thank You Prof. Antanas Mickevicius for your hard work, listening and answering to my medical concerns fully. I was treated with respect and it was the knowledge and trust Prof. Mickevicius inspired that made me feel secure and in the best hands. I would highly recommend Prof Mickevicius and his medical team!
Excellent hospital and first class service from beginning to end. The facilities are very nice, modern and clean, meeting all the high standards.
The staff goes above and beyond to make your stay comfortable.
