Obesity surgeons in the UK

An obesity or bariatric surgeon is a doctor who specialises in the surgical treatment of morbid obesity, a condition which arises from severe accumulation of excess weight as fatty tissue, and the resultant health problems ("co-morbidities") which occur. 

Obesity surgery is only performed on seriously obese patients who have not been unable to achieve satisfactory and sustained weight loss by dietary efforts and is suffering from co-morbid conditions which are either life-threatening or a serious impairment to the quality of life.
