Mr Jamie Kelly
Consultant General Surgeon
BM, BSc (Hons), FRCS
I qualified in 1995. I have a specialist interest in laparoscopic and minimal access surgery. This is demonstrated in my approach and personal development of weight loss surgery. I have received extensive obesity training in the UK and abroad, specialising in gastric banding, gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and revisional procedures.
After completing my surgical training locally in the Wessex area I spent two years on an Australian surgical fellowship, returning to the UK in 2007. In 2008 I was appointed at the Southampton University Hospital NHS as a Consultant General Surgeon and have become a highly respected bariatric surgeon.
I have advanced interventional endoscopic skills and have pioneered endoscopic surgical techniques (ie scarless). I continue to develop these procedures within the UK and am involved in national and international research trials to optimise patient treatment and care.
I am a member of the Medical Advisory Committee for Spire Southampton Hospital.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Jamie Kelly at Spire include:
I also carry out the Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) at Spire Southampton. This offers similar weight loss benefits but without the surgery or scars. It is also a safer, lower risk procedure performed as a day case in around two hours under general anaesthetic.
Spire Southampton Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
