Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is an increasingly common treatment for obesity.
If diet, exercise and medicines haven't worked for you, bariatric surgery might be something to consider.
This type of surgery can help you achieve long-term weight loss and improve your quality of life. It can also reduce the health risks associated with some obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
We have put together a team of specialists to provide multidisciplinary support for obesity including lifestyle, pharmaceutical, endoscopic and surgical options for weight loss.
‘The whole process from start to finish with Mr Ahmed was amazing. He made me feel 100 per cent comfortable and confident in all my decision making. I managed to lose over 50 per cent of my body weight, I have zero scars from the surgery and he has completely changed my life and outlook towards food.'
Georgia Platts, patient
