Surgeon Paul Super
Specialism star


 "I have received first class service from start to finish. From the lovely staff at my first consultation to Dr. Super performing my surgery, to the nurses in theatre and on the surgical ward at Spire Parkway to the nurses following my journey post operatively As a nurse myself I expected high standards and boy did they deliver. I would not hesitate to recommend Healthier Weight to anyone thinking of weight loss surgery."

More Information

We are very fortunate to have Mr Paul Super MB, BS, FRCS among our team of weight loss surgeons. In fact Mr Super was our first surgeon and placed his first gastric band for Healthier Weight in 2005, some 12 years ago. We have worked together continuously since that time.

In the years since Mr Super has gone on to place more gastric bands than any other surgeon in the UK. It is no exaggeration to say he is one of the most prolific band surgeons in the world with over 10,000 procedures undertaken.

In addition to his private weight loss work, Mr Super is also a consultant Upper GI surgeon at Heart of England NHS Trust in Birmingham. This is one of the largest weight loss units within the NHS and was set up by Mr Super over 10 years ago.

Mr Super is the UK’s most experienced band surgeon.

He is so specialist in the procedure that he has contributed towards the development of gastric band surgical technique. The best example of this is the ‘Birmingham stitch’. This is a special way in which to suture he band in place in order to reduce the incidence of band slippage. This technique was developed by Mr Super and is used by surgeons around the world.

Mr Super favours the gastric band over other surgical options for weight loss because it is the safest surgical option. When accompanied with good aftercare it delivers long terms weight loss results that are comparable to those for sleeve and bypass, but with the benefit of being a safer, reversible procedure.

Mr Super has his private practice at Spire Parkway Hospital in Solihull. He has clinics every week, including seeing appointments. If you would like to book a consultation about a gastric band, please call our team on 0800 313 4618
