Welcome to The London Obesity and weight loss treatment practice

The London Obesity Practice is an innovative obesity treatment centre based in the heart of the city.

The London Obesity Practice is a comprehensive and multi-specialist obesity treatment service located in the heart of the City of London. The obesity treatment centre's location ensures that patients referred from within London and from outside London can easily reach us.

Our approach to obesity is that it is a multi-faceted condition with clear and varied health damaging consequences. We believe that simply telling our patients to “go and lose weight? is unhelpful. Rather, we offer enlightened, sympathetic and practical guidance with the option to escalate to medical, endoscopic and surgical obesity treatment interventions to achieve this aim.

Reflecting this approach our clinical team is made up of nutritionists, lipidologists (blood fat experts), gastroenterologists and a hepatologist (liver expert). We also have a close working relationship with NHS colleagues at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospital for psychological input as necessary. Naturally, as the London obesity practice is located, we have direct access to cardiologists, gynaecologists and rheumatologists should our patients need input from these specialists.

To down-size our patients we are able therefore to offer the full range of obesity treatment options from detailed and personalised dietary and life-style guidance to medication, through to endoscopic intervention and/or surgery. Our service is fully in-line with the recommendations of the UK’s National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE).

What is ‘obesity’?
Obesity is an excess of fat stores in the body. It is caused by an imbalance between calorie intake and energy expenditure. The health consequences of obesity are many and include depression, heartburn, oesophageal and other cancers, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, strokes, arthritis and liver disease, which may result in liver failure.
