About the Author

Denise Ratcliffe is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist who has worked in bariatric surgery for the past 10 years. She is the psychology lead for bariatric surgery at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and Phoenix Health, UK. She is also Head of Clinical Health Psychology at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.


"If you want to understand the potential challenges of bariatric surgery and how best to manage them, this is the book for you. Dr Ratcliffe clearly has a wealth of experience working with people who have had weight loss surgery. In this book you will not only find many interesting facts about surgery but also numerous practical ways to prepare and remain on track for years to come. I will be recommending this to all my patients and students coming to work with me."

Dr Jackie Doyle, Clinical Psychologist, Centre for Weight Management, Metabolic and Endocrine Surgery, University College London Hospitals NHS Trust.

"Denise Ratcliffe has worked in the field of bariatric psychological support for the past 10 years, and her book, Living with Bariatric Surgery, has been made possible by the privilege of having listened to thousands of people recount their stories of life before and after bariatric surgery. These stories echo through the pages of the book, and are interspersed with practical advice, adding richness to the material and making it not only a useful resource, but also, at times, a moving read."

The Lancet, March 2019
