The Best Weight Loss Surgeons You Can Trust

The Best Weight Loss Surgeons

At Healthier Weight we are proud to have the best, most experienced and talented bariatric surgeons.

Choosing The Best Surgeon For Weight Loss Surgery?

Weight loss surgery is a life changing operation, and choosing the surgeon and clinic to get this done with should be a well researched choice. 

You probably already have a criteria of what you want in your surgeon. We have created a list of what you should look for in a bariatric surgeon before going ahead and booking weight loss surgery with them. 

What Are Their Credentials?

It’s important to look at your surgeons credentials, if they are based in the UK then you can start by looking at the GMC Register. 

The GMC is a specialist register with the names of all doctors and surgeons in the United Kingdom. Your surgeon should be on that register and should be on the GMC specialist register specifically for general surgery.

How Many Surgery Have They Completed?

Unfortunately this information is not quite as easy to get hold of as there isn’t a public database of every surgery performed by a surgeon. 

However, most clinics will have the information and be more than happy to share this with you. 

At Healthier Weight we have Surgeons with fantastic stats such as

  • Markos Daskalakis who has performed Over 1500 surgeries
  • Medical Director and Revision expert Mr Rishi Singhal who has performed over 1000 sleeves, 750 bypass’ and 250 revisions.
  • Gastric band expert Mr Paul Super who performs over 400 band operations a year.

What Are The Success' Of The Surgeon?

Preforming hundreds of surgeries is a great start, but knowing that the patients have gone on to lose weight, battle obesity and reverse serious health conditions such as type 2 diabetes is even better. 

Look at your surgeons success stories, you can usually find these quite easily through the clinic they work at website, social media, or even their own websites.

Is There A Multidisciplinary Team?

What is just as important as your surgeon is the team around them. Having an MDT should be essential, this should consist of at least. 

  • Specialist Anaesthetist
  • Nutritionist
  • Physiatrist
  • Clinical 

The MDT will provide your care from the day of assessment onwards so it’s important that you feel comfortable with the entire team.

Is There An Aftercare Team?

Again, surgery goes beyond just the surgeon being the best choice, their aftercare should be just as good. To give you the best chance at success after weight loss surgery you need to make sure that the aftercare provided is up to scratch.

Depending on your surgery, your aftercare should include 

  • Long-term follow up calls
  • Blood tests
  • Surgeon follow up

Does Your Surgeon Make You Feel Safe and Comfortable?

Going in for surgery can make anyone nervous, we know that it’s important for patients to trust their surgeon to take care of them during the surgery. 

Make the most of free consults, this is your first chance to get to know the surgeon who could be preforming your surgery, ask all the questions you need and get a feel for them. You might feel instantly reassured and know within seconds whether you surgeon is the one for you or not. 

Make sure you check with the clinic how many surgeons are available in your location, you could have a few different consults with multiple surgeons until you find the one for you!
