 Obesity or bariatric surgery performed by expert surgeons at Spire Southampton Hospital

There is now a wider range of weight loss surgery procedures available and our excellent specialist surgeons are highly trained in the following:

  • Gastric band – usually one night in hospital with follow up appointments for band fills
  • Roux-en-Y gastric bypass – more complex surgery, usually resulting in more rapid weight loss and requiring a three night stay in hospital
  • Sleeve gastrectomy – reduces stomach size to about one third and requires a three night stay in hospital
  • Biliopancreatic diversion and duodenal switch (BPD-DS) – a combination of sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass. More extensive surgery requiring three or four nights in hospital.
  • POSE - incisionless surgery, for people with a lower BMI of 30 - 40 for whom other types of surgery may not be suitable
  • Abiliti - the gastric implant or pacemaker that gently stimulates your stomach with a feeling of fullness when you eat or drink something, helping your brain believe you are full and more likely to eat less. Mr James Byrne is now offering this procedure. For more information please email gill.kelly@spirehealthcare.com or call 023 8091 4475.

In addition to weight loss surgery we also offer a non-surgical weight loss service, click here for more information.

Our experienced consultants perform around 160 weight loss surgery operations each year. All use keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery techniques where appropriate, meaning there is no need for a big incision. After surgery follow up appointments with the surgeon and dietitian are provided.
