Gastric sleeve surgeons
meet our sleeve surgeons

Your sleeve surgery is only as good as the surgeon who is doing it. Although the procedure seems simple, we have described cutting and stapling the stomach in a procedure that can take as little as 45 minutes, it still requires a considerable amount of skill. We focus our sleeves on surgeons have done a lot of cases. This ensures that there is familiarity with the anatomy and what to expect. All our sleeve surgeons do sleeves in their NHS practice as well as with Healthier Weight.

Your risk of experiencing a peri (during) or post-operative complication is closely related to the skills and experience of your surgeon.

We review sleeve outcome data from multiple sources. We have seen data for surgeons who have leak rates (leaks are a complication of a gastric sleeve) of 5% or above and others who have done hundreds of cases without a leak. All surgeons will have complications, they are inevitable due to the unpredictability of surgery, nonetheless, there will be a variance in complication rates. We monitor surgeon outcomes closely and work only with those who achieve outcomes within the narrow thresholds we set. This helps to achieve excellent results for our patients.
