This was a second opinion for me as I had a bypass in Surrey and had pain on eating and severe nausea, I had been passed to St Marys as my local hospital had run out of options, my 1st appointment at St Marys the consultant took an interest and I really felt he was going to help me, he was thorough very caring and I felt like he wanted to help me get better, after numerous tests he had asked for it was noted I had 2 hernias and possible candy cane, the only thing left to do was go into the stomach and have a look this was done very quickly and I am so glad I did he found and repaired the hernias, my new stomach had shifted up and I had few nip and tucks of the original bypass, he was sure I would feel better and after being discharged the next day he then called me to check I was OK which I am the stomach ache and nausea have both gone I am no longer on anti sickness drugs. I cant thank him enough this surgery has given me my relieve of daily pain and constant sickness, bariatric surgery is vital and it gives people their live back, I live with severe Fibrolamgia and ME and the tummy pain and sickness ontop of my other elements was a lot to deal with, so I am greatful to him for taking time and listening to me 100%

I have found Dr Sanjay Purkayastha to be extremely professional and accomplished in his approach to his patients. He is welcoming helpful and takes the time to listen and explain the various issues to do with a particular health situation. He is open and approachable and makes you feel safe and comfortable under his care. Dr Purkayastha and is Team in Bariatrics and in Endocrinology, namely Dr Saira Hameed, do remarkable work to help and care for their patients, restoring their health and giving them their lives back. In the Bariatrics waiting area at St Mary's Hospital there is a plaque praising the Department and citing it as a Centre of Excellence. I could not agree more.

I met Mr Sanjay as an emergency patient. I was comforted with his thorough explanation of his course of action. I believe he is an excellent and kind doctor who showed me great care and patience before & after my operation.I was reassured with his post operative care and close eye until I went safely back to my country.
