Information for GPs






Mr Whitelaw is always happy to visit GP practices, throughout Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridge and provide information about how best to help patients with weight problems, jaundice, gallstones and hernias. I have given a large number of talks on these subjects and below is a flavour of the types of subjects I'd be happy to give a talk on.


Weight loss Surgery

Gastric bypass for the overweight patient, pros and cons.

Co-morbidity (diabetes, sleep apnoea, heart  disease, hypertension) in the overweight patient: is surgery the answer?

Weightloss surgery performed overseas – potential problems and how to negotiate them.

Managing band refills, revision surgery and dietetic needs.

Obalon/Gastric Balloon for weight loss.



Gallbladder Surgery

Laparoscopic bile duct exploration.

These are examples of the educational talks I am able offer to GPs and Practice Staff.  If there is something specific to your practice that comes within one of these areas or within the upper GI general surgical parameter’s I am always happy to tailor a talk.
