Mr Anthony Perry, Consultant Surgeon at the Weight Loss Clinic, Spire South Bank Hospital in Worcester, appeared today on the Tony Fisher programme on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
Mr Perry and past patient Alex Lovesey, spoke about the service and the ever important effect that obesity can have on your health. Alex suffers from type 2 diabetes and before having the surgery last year was having to inject insulin to control her diabetes. Her GP suggested that she consider getting a gastric band and in early 2010 she came to Spire South Bank Hospital to see Mr Perry.
Following surgery last year, Alex has lost an amazing 4 stone and hasn't had to inject insulin since the day before her operation. She now says that she has a zest for life that she didn't have before!.
