On meeting Mr Hayden I was reassured by his kindness and expertise. He explained everything clearly and thoroughly and I was ready for the next step…

The after care was excellent and I feel I have my life back, more importantly I am back in control.

Thank you guys for making this experience wonderful and for giving me a new lease on life. Don’t wait for the NHS to pay for your operation, do it private and receive the best care in the world.

Recent gastric band operation

… I was able to get all the nutrients I needed. Five and a half stones lighter I am delighted with the results. My confidence has returned. I can shop in ‘normal’ shops and am down from size 22 to 14 …

I found the operation on my hernia which was done by key-hole surgery a success. I made a speedy recovery. The care during surgery and after I could not fault.

Best decision of my life since getting married and kids – weight just dropping off, feel so energetic … wish I had the surgery earlier.

The standard of care is top class, friendly staff & consultant – made to feel like a person not a hindrance. I have the same consultant from start to finish was truly excellent.

ED age 42 from Leeds
Repair of paraumbilical hernia

From consultation to surgery was 10 days and although very nervous the procedure was quick and painless. The result is amazing. Even after 4 weeks the scar is hardly visible and I am confident it will fade even more – thanks to Mr Hayden’s skill, care and attention to detail.

Short time between first appointment and operation day. Operation as a day patient – half day really … it took 3 weeks to be fit for light duties, sitting at a computer screen.

Key-hole inguinal hernia repair 6 weeks ago

I was accurately diagnosed and treated quickly for lipoma removal. Mr Hayden is skilled and my treatment under his care at Spire was smooth, pleasant and comprehensive. I’ve had a very good experience of day surgery, pre and post operative care and my problem has been resolved. Thank you to Mr Hayden and colleagues.

Removal of lipoma (fatty lump) from under skin

I feel so much better in myself for losing the weight – it has taken a lot of grit and determination but it has been worth it, my own thoughts of life are that Mr Hayden has given me a second chance at it and you don’t really know what you’ve lost till you’ve lost it, I was really lucky to get my life back on track thanks to Mr Hayden and the team, I really have something to look forward to in life and constantly encourage others to do the same.

I had a scan the same day as the appointment and the surgery four days later. The time frame of having the operation within a few days of seeing a consultant was fantastic.

This weight loss has been nice and steady and consistent with absolutely no problems. Great relationship with the Consultant and dietician and Spire Hospital.

My gastric bypass has been a life saver – in health, well-being and the way I look at my change in life style. My care throughout has been excellent.

CS age 50 from Ripon (95 kg to 69 kg)

The gastric bypass carried out by Mr Hayden has changed my life. Improved my mobility, type 2 diabetes gone and no longer need inhalers to help me breathe. I have received plenty of support over the past 2 years. I feel so much better in myself.

SM age 64 from Leeds (126 kg to 93 kg)
2 years after Lap Roux en y Gastric Bypass

The operation was much easier than I expected; by the time I left hospital I wasn’t in much pain at all and I was pretty self sufficient. The hardest part was not being able to drive. I also missed a few special occasions, with not being able to eat as others and this made me feel a bit down. But now at six weeks, I feel I have more energy and get about so much more easily and love the comments I get from everyone, so missing out on a few celebrations seems a minor sacrifice.

AC age 42 from Leeds (150 kg to 131 kg)
6 weeks after Lap Sleeve Gastrectomy

Before the operation I felt I had no enjoyment in life nothing to aim towards. I felt I was on a constant spiral downwards. Since having the operation I have had a healthy baby boy and my life is definitely on the upwards spiral. I can move around and enjoy general day to day activities with ease and wouldn’t have been able to do activities with my child otherwise. My life has completely changed due to the operation and I don’t regret one minute of it.
