I absolutely recommend Simon Monkhouse for weight loss surgery. He has completely changed my life for the better in ways I could never describe in a review. From my very first consultantation, to my surgery and now in my after care, Simon is always there to support and encourage my journey. His experience and professionalism is undeniable and the care of each patient shines through. I continue to recommend anyone looking to have weight loss surgery to see Simon, as I can honestly say that I trust him

I met Simon to discuss Bariatric surgery and was put at ease the moment I met him. He explained very clearly the options and I had a Gastric Bypass 10 weeks later. The care provided by Simon was exceptional, he takes a personal interest in all of his patients’ journeys and provides support through messenger and his patients Facebook group. He has set up a patient support group which meets 4 weekly and personally speaks to every person attending whether they be about to start their journey or are3 years post op. I have spent many years working in the NHS and have never met a more compassionate, empathetic and supportive surgeon. The process has changed my life and I can not recommend Simon highly enough.

Simon is without doubt the best medical professional I have ever come across! Kind, compassionate and caring! I've never known a surgeon go so out of their way to ensure all patients are doing well! You will not receive better care anywhere, I could not recommend my surgical experience with Simon more! You will receive not only a top class surgeon, but all the support and aftercare you need to utterly change your life! Meeting Simon and having a gastric sleeve has transformed my life, I thank God 9 months ago I made the appointment to see him, as now I have a whole new wonderful future to look forward to! Thank you Simon!

Simon did my sleeve at the beginning of 2019 at Spire in Gatwick. It has changed my life! The surgery it’s self when amazingly and afterwards the recovery went smoothly. Whilst recovering I was in contact with Simon and the team and any questions I had they were only a message away. If any one is considering weight loss surgery I couldn’t recommend Simon enough.

Simon clearly knows his field very well and you couldn't be in better hands. From the first consultation I was totally at ease with having my Sleeve done by him. The aftercare is also top notch. Who has ever heard of a surgeon messaging you every day after the op to check on your recovery? Simon is very much involved with supporting his patients with the help of his team. If you are considering bariatric surgery please do not hesitate in speaking to Simon.

I had a Gastric Bypass with DR Simon Monkhouse almost six months ago and it is the best decision i have ever made. From the first meeting with him and his team you get the most undersanding and sympathetic treatment.It's not an easy decision to make but Simon Monkhouse goes above and beyond of what i was expecting. If you are considering any type of surgery with him i truly believe he is the best. The results have been amazing and since surgery i have lost more than seven stone, with a great back up team i'm on my way to a totally transformed person.
