Phoenix Health works in close partnership with BMI The Blackheath Hospital (address: 40-42 Lee Terrace, London, SE3 9UD) and we have a clinic here for weight loss consultations and procedures.
The clinic is overseen by Professor David Kerrigan, President of BOMSS (The British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society). Considered one of the UK’s leading authorities on obesity and bariatric surgery, Professor Kerrigan is also an expert advisor to the GMC (The General Medical Council) and the RCSENG (The Royal College of Surgeons of England), and his views on weight loss surgery are often sought by national newspapers, the BBC, ITV and Sky News. He was also the lead surgeon for Andrew and Sharon Hill, who appeared in the popular Channel 4 documentary series “Shut-Ins: Britain’s Fattest People.” Supported by a local team of Dieticians, Clinical Psychologists, Consultants and Senior Bariatric Surgeons, you really are in the best possible hands with us when it comes to weight loss surgery.
We offer various weight loss treatments at this clinic, including gastric bands, gastric bypasses, gastric sleeves and re-do surgery. We’re also one of the few clinics in the UK who are experienced in administering the Elipse gastric balloon, which requires no surgery whatsoever.

The duodenal switch (DS) procedure involves a sleeve gastrectomy in combination with surgical bypass of the majority of the small intestine.
The BoB procedure is used to treat weight regain after failed gastric bypass. It involves placing a conventional gastric band around the mid-portion of the over-stretched stomach pouch. This shrinks its capacity and slows down the rate at which it empties.
The intragastric balloon is considered to be a more minor procedure, as it is not as invasive and can be carried out under sedation.
