Our specialist team can help you lose weight with or without surgery

At LapSurgery Australia we believe in providing comprehensive care for our patients. This is why we have a specialist team of medical and allied health professionals to help you achieve your weight loss goals even if surgery isn’t right for you.

We know that, to achieve long term results, you need long term changes to your lifestyle. So, we offer help with getting started and setting up a plan that will keep you reaching your goals in the future.

  • Nutrition Advice
    Get your health on track with tailored dietary advice.

    At LapSurgery Australia we believe in providing the best possible care for our patients. That’s why our team includes an accredited dietitian.

    Research shows that most people can’t stick to diets in the long term. So our dietitian focuses on creating a plan for your nutrition that you can stick to.

    The right combination of nutrition can help to promote fullness and so, along with listening in to the body’s hunger signals, it is often possible to lose weight without excessive hunger or restrictive dieting.

  • Exercise
    Move forward with the help of our exercise professionals.

    At LapSurgery Australia our goal is to offer a fully integrated model of care to help you to improve your health and assist with weight loss. This is why we have a team of qualified, experienced exercise professionals to help you reach your goals to lead a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

    Our team of exercise physiologists and physiotherapists are different to personal trainers or gym instructors.

  • Metabolic Testing

    Many of our patients have difficulty losing weight which is why we can now investigate your metabolism with our new ECAL indirect calorimetry technology. ECAL is the world’s first Energy Testing System designed specifically to aid practitioner management of Chronic diseases such as Obesity, Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes.

    Using ECAL we can gather key physiological data that allows us to:

    • Perform a valid, reliable and accurate assessment of your metabolic profile
    • Classify your metabolism as slow, normal or fast
    • Determine if you are burning fat to generate energy.
    • Assess your mitochondrial function
    • Determine the success or failure of your diet, exercise or lifestyle changes

    <h5>What Does the Test Involve?</h5>

    The test itself is a 5-minute breath test. You will be asked to relax and breathe into a mouth piece for around 5 minutes. The ECAL machine will measure the levels of carbon-dioxide you are breathing out which will be used in calculations to determine your metabolic profile. Your session will also involve an assessment before the test and a summary of the results of the test and recommended actions. The test results are processed immediately.

    <h5>How Does It Work?</h5>

    ECAL uses indirect calorimetry, the gold standard for assessing human metabolism. Information gathered from ECAL includes daily energy requirement at rest in calories, how this energy is being produced (whether from fat or carbohydrate), and the efficiency with which cells use oxygen for energy production. Such technology was previously only available to elite athletes and academic researchers but is now available to the public at LapSurgery Australia.

    Contact us for more information about ECAL.

  • Medical Weight Management

    Our specialist weight loss GP can help you to supplement lifestyle changes with medications for weight loss. In the past few years, new weight loss medications have been approved which can reduce appetite or increase feelings of fullness.
