Hear from our bariatric nurse Mary Casey about Spire Roding's weight loss service and what we can do to help you achieve your goals:
Weight loss surgery at Spire Roding Hospital, Redbridge can be performed by the three experienced bariatric consultant that hold clinics here. Mr K Mannur is also the Director of Bariatric Services at The Homerton Hospital in Hackney. He is very experienced and offers free consultations to patients who are thinking of having this surgery. Mr Agrawal and Mr Koak are bariatric surgeons who also work at The Homerton Hospital in Hackney under the remit of Mr Mannur.
We offer a range of weight loss surgery from gastric band, gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and duodenal switch. Initially the people thinking of having the surgery can contact Mary Casey on 07887 635 559 who will discuss the surgery or she will arrange to meet them on a 1:1 basis.
A weight loss support group is held every month for people who have had the surgery, and for people thinking of having the surgery. This is an informal meeting where there are speakers if requested and Mr Mannur attends most of the meetings.
Gail Pinnock is the Bariatric Dietician who specialises in weight loss surgery and the nutritional needs of the individual. All patients are seen pre and post operatively by Gail where their dietary needs are discussed. Gail also attends the support group meetings.
Mary (Bariatric Nurse) is available to the patients 24/7 to offer support, answer questions or alleviate concerns. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Written and verbal information is given to all patients prior to surgery and post-surgery. Regular follow ups are arranged to check on the patient’s progress with their surgeon.
Dr Nandy is also a member of the team. He is a psychiatrist with a specialist interest in eating disorders. It is a misconception that having weight loss surgery is an easy option to losing weight. The surgery will only work if the individual works with it. The success depends on the individual. For years peoples eating habits have ruled their life and now they have to change their food choices and life style. It not only causes dramatic physical changes but can cause many psychological and emotional changes as well.
The support for patients continues for as long as is necessary to try to ensure that each person is successful.
