Sleeve gastrectomy is now the most common operation performed for obesity in Australia. We have performed over 1500 Sleeve gastrectomy procedures since 2006.
Laparoscopic (keyhole) gastric bypass is considered the “gold standard” obesity operation. It is particularly effective for patients with Type 2 diabetes.
In common with Surgeons in Australia and overseas we usually do not offer this as a first option. We remain happy to discuss this option with you.
Lifestyle change is the first line in the treatment of obesity. We have a team of dietitians, doctors, psychologists, exercise professionals and nurses who can work together to help you to get you on the right track to reach your goals.
