The South East

Welcome to Phoenix in The South East

To provide a local service for patients throughout the South East of England, we have clinics at the following hospitals:

Nuffield Health Tunbridge Wells Hospital (address: Kingswood Road, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN2 4URL)

One Ashford Hospital (address: Kennington Road, Willesborough, Ashford, TN24 0YS)

Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital (address: Warren Road, Brighton, BN2 6DX)

BMI The Blackheath Hospital (address: 40-42 Lee Terrace, London, SE3 9UD)

Founded and led by Professor David Kerrigan, an internationally renowned bariatric surgeon and President of the British Obesity and metabolic Surgery Society (BOMSS), Phoenix Health offers both surgical procedures, such as gastric bands, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and re-do surgery, along with non-surgical options, like the pioneering Elipse gastric balloon, for patients looking to reduce their weight and improve their health.

Working alongside our two specialist Dieticians and Dr Denise Ratcliffe, a leading Consultant Bariatric Psychologist, the surgical team is comprised of the following specialists: Mr Midhat Siddiqui (Bariatric Unit Lewisham NHS Trust), Mr Sanjoy Basu (William Harvey Hospital Ashford), Mrs Kalpana Devalia (Bariatric Unit Homerton NHS Trust), Mr Anupam Dixit (Worthing NHS Trust and previously Bariatric Unit Homerton NHS Trust) and Professor Kerrigan himself who offers on-site support for more complex cases. Unlike many single-handed surgeon practices, our South East team truly are a multidisciplinary team who work together using the knowledge and techniques perfected by Professor Kerrigan over more than 20 years to provide each patient with a bespoke, and comprehensive package of care.

If you are considering a weight loss procedure or if you are unsure as to which option is best for you, the first step is to contact our expert advisors for a free, confidential chat. We’re sure we can help.
