John Loy is an experienced Consultant Upper GI and Bariatric Surgeon. Proud member of the VIP award winning Shropshire Bariatric Team for the kindest hospital team 2016. He offers keyhole weight-loss, gallbladder and hernia surgery as well as the full range of general surgery in both NHS and private practice.
I have had the good fortune to meet Mr Loy who has revolutionised my health, not only did he explained my condition, he operated laparoscopically on my large organoaxial volvulus caused by a giant hiatus hernia with my entire stomach in my chest. Mr Loy gave the impression this was just routine, but I am sure it wasn't as the result is outstanding and the recovery time only 3/4weeks. Should anyone have this or similar condition do not fear see Mr Loy and his team. The bonus to this I found Mr Loy extremely approachable, helpful and with a sense of humour.
Mr Loy made me feel really at ease from the moment I met him, he seemed caring & listened to what I had to say. He explained exactly what would be involved on my journey before I had surgery & what would be happening during surgery. I knew it would be about 18mths until I had surgery, with all sorts of tests that needed to be done to make sure I was ok first, & all this time, the whole team were really great. The day of my surgery came, it all went well, saw Mr Loy the next morning, he explained that everything went to plan. Saw him again a few weeks later for a check up, feeling brilliant, can't thank him enough for what he's done for me, would recommend him to anyone. Good luck in your new job x
Mr loy is amazing most polite and friendly consultant felt so at ease with him cannot say a bad word about this man i was banded in may 2017 at Nuffield Shrewsbury
I started my Bariatric surgery just over a year ago under Mr Loy and I have to say that he is the most professional, caring and funny consultant I have ever met, what I like about him is his passion for bariatric surgery and the joy he seems to get by seeing his patients wellbeing and life change for the better, he explains every part of the journey that us patients will go through in a way that us non medical people can understand. The day of surgery I was nervous but following a funny chat with him before I went to theatre put me totally at ease and surgery went really well, and today I had my first consultation with him and the wonderful bariatric team since my surgery in April and the look on his and the other members of the teams faces said it all
I cannot speak highly enough of mr Loy. I had an appt with him last September to discuss bariatric surgery. I was still 50/50 on that day as to whether I was going to go through with an operation as I was honestly petrified. Mr Loy smiled, spoke to me calmly and totally reassured me that a gastric bypass was right for me. He was sympathetic, empathetic and looked at me during the whole conversation. On the day of surgery he came to see me beforehand and chatted and further reassured me that I would be fine.....and I was! Post op he visited with his jovial cheerful attitude and fully explained everything to me. He is a wonderful surgeon and a wonderful person. Anyone referred under his care should consider themselves very lucky.
