Bariatric Surgery for Weight Loss
Almost 60% of Australian adults have a weight problem and for those who are severely overweight Bariatric (obesity) Surgery offers the real possibility of lifelong weight control. Thousands of people in Australia die every year from obesity related diseases and hundreds of thousands suffer medical, physical and social disability.
Unlike the majority of obesity surgery clinics that offer only one operation, we believe everyone is different so aim to provide you with all the information and all the choices for your condition.
