MBBS, MS, FRCSEd, FRCSGlasg, FRCS (Gen Surg)
I am a Consultant Surgeon specialising in bariatric (obesity / weight loss), laparoscopic (keyhole) and upper gastrointestinal surgery at Spire London East Hospital in Redbridge.
I have had extensive training in the UK, Belgium, Japan and India and have undertaken more than 2,500 general surgical procedures so far. In addition, I have an experience of over 1,250 laparoscopic bariatric procedures to date.
I am Director of London International Bariatric Surgery Symposium (LIBSS) which organised LIBSS-2019 at Homerton University Hospital from 21-22 November, 2019. It was a hugely successful event attended by approximately 200 attendees from 22 countries around the world.
I am designated as ‘Master Surgeon in Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery™ (MSMBS™)’ by Surgical Review Corporation of USA. Worldwide, this is seen as a marker of quality assurance in patient care. I have the honour of being the only weight loss/obesity surgeon in the UK to achieve this certification. I have also been awarded ‘Certificate of Medical Excellence’ and membership of Top Doctors® UK by invitation. Other honours include being the First Post-CCT Fellow in bariatric and upper GI surgery awarded under the National Surgical Fellowship Scheme through the Royal College of Surgeons of England in partnership with the Surgical Specialist Associations for a year.
I train other surgeons in bariatric and laparoscopic surgery and have made numerous presentations at national and international meetings, as well as publications in peer-reviewed journals.
As Chief Editor, I have also edited as well as authored for a textbook titled ‘Obesity, Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery: A Practical Guide’ published in August, 2015 by Springer. The book has now achieved more than 107,000 combined chapter downloads electronically worldwide since release.
Research interests: My main areas of research interest are in bariatric surgery – in particular, in investigating outcomes and complications of bariatric surgery from a clinical perspective.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Sanjay Agrawal at Spire include:

I have an interest in cooking and am forever trying out new recipes - sometimes with disastrous results! I also have a passionate interest for classical Indian music, which I find very relaxing.
In addition to my recreational interests, I have been involved in doing charity work by attending and organising surgical camps in India.
