Weight loss surgery at Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital offers fully supportive weight loss surgery where all of the treatment and care is carried out at the hospital, so why travel? Stay local.

Our specialist weight loss surgery team will support you before and after surgery

If you carry excess weight then losing weight can help to change your life. Our patients tell us that weight-loss surgery gives them the chance to do things they never thought possible. They have renewed zest for life with the energy and enthusiasm to play with their kids, play sports or even the confidence to go on a beach holiday.

At Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital we have some of the most highly experienced weight loss specialist Surgeons and Consultants available, including surgeons Mr Richard Hardwick and Mr Peter Safranek and Consultant Radiologist Dr Nicholas Carroll.

Our multidisciplinary approach helps to ensure that you are consistently supported throughout your treatment with us, and that you can access the right advice and support at the right time.

Research has shown that weight-loss surgery can be more effective in the long term than weight-loss drugs or diets for some patients.

Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital, offers safe and effective weight-loss surgery (also known as obesity surgery or bariatric surgery) in the form of the gastric banding and gastric sleeve surgery (sleeve gastrectomy) procedure.

Surgery is only part of the solution - we also have a dedicated weight-loss surgery support team including a bariatric (weight-loss) specialist nurse and a dietician, who will all support you to follow lifestyle changes both before and after surgery.

All weight loss surgery is offered within a package which includes a 2 year aftercare programme with our Spire Cambridge Lea Hospital bariatric team, including your Consultant.
