Professor Siba Senapati is a 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.

The following weight loss and bariatric 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 my 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 recently been awarded ‘Honorary Professorship’ by Manchester Metropolitan University for his excellence in research, education and teaching.

We are currently an Obesity epidemic, which will have a significant effect on our health and wellbeing, as well as a cost to the economy. The cause of this epidemic is multifactorial 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 are keen to organise other public events to increase awareness on obesity. Their motto is ‘Active Living and Healthy Eating’.
