It can feel like a never-ending struggle at times. Eventually, you may start to consider weight loss surgery, prompting many questions.

Research shows that weight loss surgery makes a significant and long- lasting difference to people struggling with obesity.

Dr Phil Lockie – Bariatric surgeon

I am an Australian and UK trained Upper GI and Laparoscopic surgeon. I was trained mainly in the UK before completing an Upper GI Fellowship at Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney and this was followed by a Laparoscopic Surgical Fellowship in Canberra. During my training, I completed a research thesis resulting in a Master of Philosophy Degree and I won the UK Intensive Care Society’s Travelling Fellowship that allowed me to visit trauma centres in Denver, Memphis and Seattle. I was awarded my Fellowship from the Irish College of Surgeons in 1985 and I won the Gold Medal at the Intercollegiate Examination in General Surgery in February 2003. I was the first surgeon from Belfast ever to win the Gold Medal. I was awarded my Fellowship from the Australian College of Surgeons in 2006.

He visits once a month to the practice. Please contact reception staff for details.
