Weight Loss Surgery Specialists

As weight loss surgery specialists we treat all our patients with care, concern and compassion.

Streamline Surgical fully understands what people go through when they are overweight, the difficult decision having bariatric surgery can be, and the post-operative care needed for every patient. Bariatric surgery isn’t simply about losing weight. The transformation our patients go through in terms of their self-esteem and health, as well as weight loss is what makes our job so fulfilling.

Established by the ‘Fat Doctors’ Shaw Somers and Guy Slater, Streamline Surgical is one of the UK’s largest obesity surgery units. The surgeons and team have unrivalled expertise and experience gained from over one thousand bariatric operations. Streamline Surgical is able to cater for even the largest and most challenging of cases, setting the company aside from similar centres in the UK – no case is too large!

We are based at several locations in the South of England, performing both NHS and private weight loss surgeries. Our specialist clinical team will support you every step of the way. On hand to help you are dietitians and of course our surgeons, so that whatever your goal may be our team have the means to help you achieve the results you want and to become the person you want to be.

From the first time that you see us you will be in the hands of our nationally recognised surgeons, all of whom are members of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS) and the International Federation of the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders (IFSO). Our surgeons operate and train other surgeons, both internationally and in three of the major NHS Specialist centres. With enviable UK and international reputations we offer the highest levels of expertise and care in all of our centres.

Our post-operative care is second-to-none reflected in the fact we achieve above average results in weight loss with our Gastric Band patients. We also provide post-operative care for patients having surgery elsewhere.

Our principle aim is to treat all patients with care, concern and compassion to facilitate their ultimate goal of continuous weight loss and help them to become the people they want to be!
