I’d like to express my sincerest gratitude for how swiftly and decisively you decided to operate to remove my gallbladder on 19th December at East Surrey. I had no prior warning of anything untoward until the Friday afternoon before the operation, when I suddenly started getting griping pains in my stomach. We came to A and E Sunday morning and very little was done until the next day when you saw me and realised the urgency of my situation. We will always be profoundly grateful that you were on duty on that Monday when we needed you – a surgeon with such skill and astute judgement. Incredible good fortune for us. My family and I will always be grateful for the swift action you took to operate, thus saving my life as the gall bladder was about to rupture. You are a credit to your profession. It’s good to know the NHS can still rely on exceptional doctors and nurses to help save lives. Once again, many thanks for saving my life. Not only did you save my life, you treated both my wife and I with such consideration, taking the time to explain with clarity the urgency of the situation and filling us with confidence that you would keep me safe. Your kindness in taking my wife's phone number and ringing her personally after the operation was remarkably thoughtful of you, given how phenomenally busy you were. A remarkable surgeon. Thank you so much.

I initially had a consultation with another bariatric surgeon on personal recommendation. I had however, already discovered Simon & felt he was the right choice so had a consultation with him & he immediately felt right. Simon & his team are always on the end of the phone, email, WhatsApp to answer any questions & the whole process was so easy. I travelled from Wales to Spire Gatwick for a bypass in September 2022, the hospital was spotless & comfortable & every member of staff was friendly, caring & professional. My only regret is not having done it 20 plus years ago! If you are thinking about bariatric surgery, look no further for a wonderful surgeon & team. Go on make that appointment & change your life.

If you want to have surgery with the best surgeon who has the best team for pre and post op care this is your guy! Simon cares deeply about the welfare of each and every one of his patients, he goes above and beyond to deliver the best patient experience. There aren’t many surgeons who you can contact directly pre and post op and who personally check up on you if you have any concerns at all when you go home from hospital. I had three different consultations before having mine with Simon and didn’t feel confident enough to go ahead with any one until I met him. I knew I would be in the best hands possible and couldn’t wait for my op once I’d had my initial consultation. His team of dieticians and nurses are all so dedicated to their job and giving the best advice and care there is. Honestly, if you’ve found Simon you’re very lucky and my advice would be to just book that op, you won’t regret it!

I had my initial consultation with Simon in February to discuss my options for weight loss surgery. Straight away I was put at ease and believed he would do whatever was best for me. Due to severe psoriasis I was advised that my procedure would not be safe to do until this was under control. This was treated and cleared and in August I had my bypass. From the moment I walked in to the hospital I felt comfortable and nerves disappeared. All care from Simon and the amazing team since has been incredible. Any worries they are there for you. I would 100% recommend Simon and his team. I have since lost around 4.5 stone and am the happiest and healthiest I have ever been. Even being able to stop all diabetic medication and pain relief for fibromyalgia. Just can’t thank him and the team enough.

I had a gastric bypass in December 2021 and at a year post op I have lost 100% of my excess weight! I have felt supported by my doctor and the team of professionals throughout my journey through regular appointments, social media and support group. Simon was the only man i considered for the job and it was the commitment and promise of lifelong support that made him stand out from the rest!
