Professional statement

Mr Bart Decadt is an experienced consultant general surgeon based in Manchester, Cheshire, Warrington and Blackpool. He is an expert in laparoscopic bariatric and upper GI surgery (including surgery for hernias, gallbladder problems and acid reflux).

Mr Decadt originally qualified in Belgium. He performed his surgical training at the University of Cape Town (South Africa) and in Manchester (UK). He gained an MD at the University of East Anglia on Evidence Based Laparoscopic Surgery where he was involved in the first gastric band procedures performed in the UK in 1997. Mr Decadt won the 1st European prize in Linz (Austria) in 1999 (EAES congress) with his randomised study comparing the best surgical versus the best medical treatment for patients with severe acid reflux disease. This world-unique study involving over 300 patients proved for the first time the superiority of laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery above medication in terms of quality of life and longterm outcome.

Mr Decadt was appointed consultant surgeon at Stockport NHS Foundation Trust in 2005 where he was Lead Consultant for Upper GI Surgery. He also obtained an honorary consultant position in Manchester Royal Infirmary where he pioneered laparoscopically assisted surgery for stomach and oesophageal cancer. He was part of the surgical team granted one of the first NHS bariatric contracts in the UK in 2007 involving over a 1000 patients.

Mr Decadt performs all routine bariatric (weight reducing) and diabetic (treating type 2 diabetes) surgical procedures including gastric sleeve, bypass, band, balloon and revisional procedures. He is committed to providing his patients with the highest standard of care, making sure that the best service is given through each step of their weight-loss journey.

Thank you for the kind remarks. Weight loss surgery is so rewarding not only for the weight loss in numbers but mainly for the significant improvement of many weight -related co-morbidities, which is fascinating. It was my pleasure to help you!
