Weight loss surgery Harrow
Our Harrow clinic, The Sudbury Clinic, was the UK’s first dedicated bariatric clinic, which was designed with the needs and requirements of our patients in mind. The clinic opened its doors in May 2013 and is situated in the grounds of BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital.
The head office site offers a welcoming, safe and inclusive environment for patients, ensuring that you are treated with care and compassion no matter what stage of your weight loss journey you are at.
All prep and post-operative appointments take place in the comfortable, private clinic rooms at The Sudbury Clinic. Our weight loss procedures take place in BMI The Clementine Churchill Hospital, with whom we share the grounds with.
From the flagship clinic we offer a full range of weight loss procedures; gastric balloons, gastric bands, gastric bypasses and gastric sleeves.
The clinic is easily accessible from London Heathrow Airport, Central London Airport, the Metropolitan line and or the Piccadilly line. There is also on free onsite parking available.

The gastric balloon is a soft, expandable non-surgical device that is temporarily inserted into the stomach. We understand that each person has different needs and requirements from their gastric balloon, that is why, unlike many other providers, we offer a range of gastric balloons for you to choose from.
An adjustable band is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch above the band. When the gastric band is correctly adjusted it helps control appetite, slows eating and reduce portion size.
The Gastric Bypass is the gold standard weight loss surgery. A small rectangular, pouch is formed from the upper stomach and joined to the small intestine. This surgery reduces calories absorbed and portion size.
Two thirds of the stomach is removed, leaving a smaller stomach in the shape of a sleeve. The portion of the stomach removed produces the hunger hormone, meaning there is a significant reduction in appetite.
Sometimes there might be reasons where further surgery or investigations need to take place post-surgery. There can be a number of reasons; maybe your original surgery is no longer working effectively or you are not happy with your weight loss. The best option might be to have bariatric rescue surgery.
