We are delighted to announce the extension of our weight loss service with the introduction of sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass surgery.
Spire Cardiff Hospital already has an excellent reputation over an extended period for delivering both gastric balloon and gastric band surgery lead by Mr Michael Nutt. Mr Nutt has treated a large number of patients and led a very successful service built of safety and patient satisfaction over a number of years.
However, we are now further developing the service to include full range of weight loss surgery options.
Patients across Wales are now able to access two of the leading bariatric surgeons offering sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass. Mr Jonathan Barry and Mr Hazem Al-Momani are both Welsh bariatric surgeons based at Morriston Hospital in Swansea. They are delighted to be joining the established weight loss surgery team at Spire Cardiff Hospital.
Mr Jon Barry says “It was really important to us as surgeons to join a weight loss team that enables us to offer patients the support of a full specialist team during their weight loss journey. Spire Cardiff Hospital has the experience not just to undertake the surgery but to provide support in the context of dieticians, weight loss nurse specialists and specialist physicians, which is really important for our patients.”
As the largest private provider Spire Cardiff Hospital has the experience of treating even the most complex conditions. Mr Hazem Al-Momani explains “as surgeons we need confidence in the hospital and staff we work with to support our patients both through the pre-operative, surgical and post-operative elements of their care.”
Spire Cardiff Hospital offers patients considering weight loss surgery a complimentary appointment with our weight loss nurse specialist. Sue Davies explains “any type of weight loss surgery should be carefully considered, that’s why we offer patients the opportunity to discuss weight loss surgery in full prior to meeting a consultant.”
