Ms Sally Norton  MB ChB, MD, FRCS

Consultant, Upper GI and Bariatric Surgery

North Bristol NHS Trust, University Hospitals Bristol Foundation Trust

Sally Norton is a specialist laparoscopic (key-hole) surgeon for weight-loss, gallstones and hiatus hernia or reflux disease. She is also a specialist in endoscopy and related procedures.

Having worked as a consultant surgeon at Southmead, Frenchay and Bristol Royal Infirmary hospitals since 2003, Sally has a long-established practice in weight loss surgery – leading a large multidisciplinary team that has provided surgery to over 1000 patients, and has served on the Council of the British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society.

More than just performing surgery, Sally’s success comes from her focus on providing support to patients before and after surgery.  As such she is leading the field in the development of innovative and nationally recognised patient support material such as iPhone applications and websites, which provide advice and information.

For Sally, being a consultant surgeon is not just about being able to operate; it is about taking time to understand each patient’s own requirements and even knowing when surgery is not necessarily in the patient’s best interests. A vital part of Sally’s service is discussing options before deciding, together with the patient, how best to manage symptoms or weight issues, with or without surgery.

I wish to thank you for looking after me so personally…I love the band and the healthier way of life I am leading already…delighted that I am 2 ½ stone lighter since my operation 2 months ago.


Many thanks for the wonderful care and attention you have given me through my treatment. You gave me such confidence prior to and following the surgery and have been very generous with your time.


I have now lost 4 ½ stone since my sleeve operation and it has changed my life. I have stopped my blood pressure tablets and am even going swimming. Thank you for your wonderful care.


Thank you for looking after my wife and best friend.


I just wanted to say a massive thank you for looking after me and all of your hard work. You are an inspiration! Thank you so much.


Thank you for your expertise in diagnosing and treating my gallstones – I can now eat normally again!


Thankyou all for the first class care I have received during the past year following surgery for my gastric band. My life has changed and I am feeling so much better. Many thanks
