Weight Loss Surgery

 

 

Obesity

Obesity is a significant problem in Australia affecting over 1/4 of the population. Almost 2/3 of Australians are either obese or overweight.

Surgical treatment for morbid obesity is highly effective and it is the only proven way to obtain sustained weight loss in morbid obesity. 

However, the field of weight loss surgery (also called bariatric or metabolic surgery) is constantly evolving and shaped by many varied opinions.

This provides challenges for both patients seeking treatment and surgeons practising in the field.

 

 

  

Weight Loss Surgery

Bariatrics Melbourne provides a comprehensive range of weight loss procedures. Using a patient centric approach, we aim to engage patients in a rationalised / evidence based decision making process. It is important that patients are empowered to make an informed decision regarding weight loss surgery that balances surgical risk and lifestyle choices. A understanding of short and long term outcomes is also imperative.

 

The vast majority of our surgery is minimally invasive and open surgery is reserved for complex revisional cases.

 

Bariatrics Melbourne offers the following wide range of bariatric procedures:

  • Gastric Band
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Gastric Bypass
  • Biliopancreatic Diversion
  • Intragastric Balloon
  • Revisional Bariatric Surgery
  • Overstitch Endoscopic Procedures

While bariatric surgery is usually indicated for patients that have BMI of >35, we are happy to see all patients who are concerned about their weight.

 

We provide care for patient with both the public and private systems. 

 

Uninsured patients seeking self funded surgery within the private system are also most welcome.
