Personal profile

Professor Siba Senapati is the leading Bariatric and Metabolic Surgeon in the North West of England. He currently runs the bariatric and metabolic surgery unit at Salford Royal University Teaching Hospital. He has been a Consultant Bariatric Surgeon for over 15 years and has extensive experience of both primary and revisional bariatric surgical procedures with excellent outcome and patient satisfaction. During this period he has performed more than 7,000 various laparoscopic procedures and more than 2,000 bariatric procedures.

The following weight loss and bariatric surgical procedures he performs routinely are sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, gastric banding, gastric balloon, surgery for type 2 Diabetes and revisional bariatric surgery.

Patient satisfaction is very well evidenced by consistently outstanding feedback, testimonials and letters of appreciation. Following completion of his higher surgical training, he visited leading centres in: America; Australia; Europe and Japan to enhance his skills further, especially minimal invasive surgical procedures.

Professor Senapati has presented his work and research both at national and international level, in addition to its publication in many peer-reviewed journals. He has also been an Honorary Senior Lecturer of University of Manchester for the last 5 years and has been awarded ‘Honorary Professorship by Manchester Metropolitan University for his excellence in research, education and teaching.

We are currently in an obesity epidemic, which will have a significant effect on our health and well-being, as well as the cost to the economy. The cause of this epidemic is multi-factorial and to tackle this, Professor Senapati created the Obesity Awareness and Support Information Society (OASIS-GB) with other leading health professionals, academics, researchers, council executives and voluntary sector volunteers. With support from colleagues, the organisation has already organised study days and multiple public events in Greater Manchester to increase awareness, both in health professionals and members of the general public. Their motto is Active Living and Healthy Eating.
