In an interview with ITV Wales in July 2012, Mr Jonathan Barry, a leading bariatric surgeon at Morriston hospital in Swansea, says Wales is facing an 'obesity timebomb' that could cost tax payers billions of pounds. Mr Jonathan Barry tells ITV Wales news how criteria for bariatric surgery in Wales is different to the rest of the UK and how referrals to the Welsh Institute of Metabolic and Obesity Surgery have exceeded expectations. In November 2011, members of Morriston Hospital's bariatric team showcased their surgical skills via video link to 400 delegates at the Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons' Annual Scientific Meeting. The live surgery enabled the delegates to watch WIMOS surgeons carry out different bariatric procedures and to compare the techniques with those of their own, with the intention of improving education and training. Mr Jonathan Barry, leading weight loss surgeon in Swansea, answered the Western Mail's question as to whether obesity surgery should be offered to Welsh teenagers. He also gave an interview to the South Wales Evening Post regarding the same issue.
