Trustpilot rating

Mr Kasem introduced, developed and has run the NHS bariatric practice in Lanarkshire, Scotland since 2004. He performs a range of weight loss procedures but his main expertise is with the laparoscopic gastric band and gastric balloon, both of which he performs on the NHS and in the private sector.

"I recognise that both the gastric band and gastric balloon are important tools for the achievement of weight loss goals* and my main aim is to explain how to use both to their advantage".

More Information

Mr Kasem first qualified in medicine in 1991. As such he is one of the most experienced surgeons within our group. He is a consultant general surgeon at Wishaw NHS Hospital in Glasgow and in his private practice, which is based at Glasgow’s Nuffield Hospital, he has chosen to specialise in weight loss surgery. After reviewing outcome data over many years he has chosen to focus his weight loss practice on the gastric band and gastric balloon procedures. Together we share the opinion that these procedures represent the safest weight loss option for patients wanting safe, effective and reversible surgical and non surgical options.

Mr Kasem is renowned for his patient care and we hear excellent feedback from patients about their experience with his. This applies to his NHS and private patients as the following post from the Doctoralia website underlines:

 ‘A very dedicated and caring doctor. Mr Kasem has always gone that 'extra mile' for me, nothing has been too much trouble. A credit to his profession and the NHS.’
