I had a very positive experience. Doctor took the time to clearly explain the procedure and the recovery time to me without rushing me into making a decision. He came across as intelligent and thoughtful, and he investigated the problem including ordering relevant tests and an ultrasound. He was calm, thorough, patient, and kind throughout which was just the approach I needed. My surgery went really well and my recovery has been proceeding without any issues. I’m now six weeks post-op and am starting to feel like myself again. Thank you, Doctor!
One of the most competent, intelligent, and informed surgeons one could hope to meet, Doctor saved my life. "Extreme competence" does not even begin to describe his level of professionalism and his wonderful humanity and intelligence.
The staff was very helpful and friendly. My Doctor was very informative and took his time to explain and listen to my feelings and fears. I felt I made the correct choice and felt prepared for the challenge and adventure ahead of me. I have people to help me along my journey to a healthier new me when that day comes!
To date, I have gone to my initial consultation at the Bariatric Surgery Centre. The location is easy to get too and the office space is comfortable, clean, and modern. The staff were cordial, friendly, and inviting. The staff as well as the doctor answered all my questions. The staff arranged future appointments with ease and provided directions for future contacts.

They're all usually done under general anaesthetic (where you're asleep) using keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery, but they each work in a slightly different way.
Keyhole surgery is where a surgeon makes small cuts in the tummy and inserts a flexible viewing tube so they can see inside while performing the operation.
A gastric band is a band that's placed around the stomach, creating a small pouch towards the top.
It takes less food to fill the pouch, so you do not need to eat as much before you feel full.
The band is connected to a small device placed under the skin (usually near the middle of the chest). This is so the band can be tightened after surgery.
The band will usually be tightened for the first time about 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. This is done by injecting the device with salt water solution using a needle passed through your skin. You do not usually need any anaesthetic for this.
The band will need to be tightened a few times to get to the ideal tightness for you.
A gastric bypass is where surgical staples are used to create a small pouch at the top of the stomach.
The pouch is then connected to your small intestine, missing out (bypassing) the rest of the stomach.
This means it takes less food to make you feel full and you'll absorb fewer calories from the food you eat.
A sleeve gastrectomy is where a large part of the stomach is removed so it's much smaller than it was before.
This means you cannot eat as much as you could before surgery and you'll feel full sooner.
An intra-gastric balloon is a soft balloon filled with air or salt water that's placed into your stomach using a thin tube passed down your throat (known as a gastroscopy).
This means you will not need or be able to eat as much before you feel full. But it's only a temporary measure and the balloon is usually left in for a maximum of 6 months.
A biliopancreatic diversion is similar to a gastric bypass, except the stomach pouch is connected further along the small intestine.
This means you'll absorb even fewer calories from the food you eat. But it can cause more side effects than a gastric bypass, so it's less commonly used.
Primary obesity surgery endolumena is a new technique to shrink your stomach. A tube called an endoscope is passed into your stomach.
A surgeon then passes tiny tools through the endoscope, which are used to gather your stomach into folds to make it smaller.
Primary obesity surgery endolumena is not currently available on the NHS so you will have to pay for this treatment.
All types of weight loss surgery can help you lose a significant amount of weight, but they each have advantages and disadvantages.
If you're considering weight loss surgery, talk to your surgeon about the different techniques to decide which is best for you.
Before you can have weight loss surgery, you'll be referred to a specialist clinic for an assessment to check if the operation is suitable.
This may involve checking your:
You may be advised to have a calorie-controlled diet in the weeks before surgery to help reduce the size of your liver. This can make surgery easier and safer.
