Background Information 
Professional profile:

Miss Marianne Sampson qualified at the University of Cambridge in 1996, prior to pursuing her higher surgical training in London, including at Barts and The London NHS Trust, University College Hospital and Colchester Hospital. She has been a consultant upper gastrointestinal and bariatric surgeon at the Royal Berkshire Hospital since 2009, and started her practice at Spire Dunedin Hospital in 2010. She has developed a comprehensive bariatric service in Reading for NHS and private patients, offering the full range of procedures including gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, gastric band and gastric balloon. She works closely with a specialist bariatric multi-disciplinary team including a bariatric dietitian (Ms Lisa Lovell), specialist nurse (Ms Kath Hallworth-Cook) and psychologist (Dr Rachael Brastock) in order to provide an optimally effective and supportive experience for patients on their weight-loss journey.

Marianne also has an interest in benign upper gastrointestinal diseases, including hiatus hernia, gastrointestinal reflux and motility problems such as achalasia. She is an endoscopic trainer, and her practice includes both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures.

Marianne undertakes major abdominal wall reconstructive procedures for very large hernias, and accepts referrals from GPs and other consultants for such cases.

Additionally, she performs a large number of laparoscopic repairs for groin and smaller abdominal wall hernias.
