Spire Leeds Hospital offers excellent, comprehensive private hospital care

If you carry excess weight then losing this weight can change and prolong your life. For over 15 years Spire Leeds Hospital has been providing safe and effective weight loss surgery (also known as obesity surgery or bariatric surgery) to suitable patients from all over the United Kingdom, and from abroad.

Over 2500 patients, some with a BMI (body mass index) as high as 100 - have benefited from having weight loss surgery at this hospital.

Gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy or gastric banding procedures may be the solution for you. We also offer band adjustments for patients who have had their band fitted elsewhere. 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 children, play sports or go on a long haul holiday as well as addressing health problems related to their weight such as diabetes and joint problems.

Spire Leeds Hospital also offers options for people who want to lose weight but don’t want or qualify for surgery. If you have a BMI of 27* or more, the Orbera™ weight loss balloon could be the ideal solution for you.

Research has shown that weight-loss surgery can be more effective in the long term than weight-loss drugs or diets. That's why Spire Leeds Hospital offers a weight-loss surgery service tailored to you.  Your weight-loss surgery will be undertaken by one of our four experienced weight loss surgeons in our safe, clean private hospital. Surgery is only part of the solution - we also have a dedicated weight-loss surgery support team including bariatric weight-loss surgery specialist nurses, physiotherapists and dietitians. After an initial consultation with your surgeon who will discuss the surgery with you in detail, it will be your decision as to whether this is the route you wish to take.

We provide on-going dietary advice and support. Our dietitian, who is experienced in weight-loss surgery, helps patients to make the all-important lifestyle changes needed to get the full benefit from weight-loss surgery. You will receive on-going personal support whilst you follow the strict post-surgery diet and our dietitian will work with you to ensure you are making the right dietary choices and are receiving sufficient nutrients.

We also host regular meetings of the weight-loss surgery patient support group at our hospital.

We will provide you with advice and support throughout your weight-loss journey - from your first appointment until long after your surgery has been completed. For more information please call 0113 218 5967/5977 or email info@spireleeds.com
