Professional statement

Mr Christopher Sutton is a general and upper gastrointestinal surgeon based in Kettering, Leicester and Nottingham, specialising in bariatric, acid reflux and gallbladder surgery alongside endoscopy and weight loss surgery. He privately practices at Woodland Hospital, Spire Leicester Hospital and BMI The Park Hospital while he is a general surgeon (Lead) and upper gastrointestinal surgeon for University Hospitals Of Leicester NHS Trust.

Mr Sutton's innovative practice, particularly in acid reflux and weight-loss surgery, is at the forefront of the field. He was the first surgeon in the UK to perform an endoscopic suturing procedure using the revolutionary Overstich device (assisting with weight loss) and the Stretta oesophagus reconstruction operation for post-obesity surgery reflux. He was also the first in the East Midlands to implant the first LINX System device for acid reflux.  

Mr Sutton's educational achievements are an impressive base for his esteemed career. He graduated with an MBBCh in Medicine in 1993 from the College of Medicine at the University of Wales and went on to undertake his junior surgical training in South Wales. He then completed his senior surgical training and higher degree in cancer research in Leicester. 

Further training saw him gain specialist experience in upper gastrointestinal and obesity surgery with University Hospitals of Leeds, now Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, and he also trained in laparoscopic gastric cancer surgery in the city. He also has international experience, visiting the Cancer Institute Hospital of the Japanese Foundation for Cancer Research in Tokyo.

His special clinical interest in acid reflux treatment and weight loss has seen him form part of the UK Reflux Interest Group and became a fellow of the British Obesity Surgical Society where he was awarded the first surgical fellowship in the UK. He also has a certificate in laparoscopic obesity surgery from the European School of Laparoscopic Surgery in Brussels.
