No More Hunger Pains for John

October 2011

John Watkins, a Burntwood man has lost six stones in weight and 12 inches off his waist in just three month after having successful obesity surgery at Spire Little Aston Hospital in Sutton Coldfield.

John Watkins, aged 49, underwent a sleeve gastrectomy that not only restricts stomach capacity, but also reduces appetite stimulating hormones in the stomach, which leads to loss of appetite. He had the treatment with leading bariatric surgeon Dr Amir Khan, based at Spire Little Aston Hospital, and is delighted with the rapid results it has helped him to achieve.
