A decision to have obesity surgery is not to be taken lightly. The goal of this website is to provide you with information that can help you decide whether it is right for you and if you are in fact a candidate for surgery.
Please note that the information in this website is part of an educational resource, and should not be used for absolute decision making about any obesity surgery or management. All such decisions must be made in consultation with a surgeon or your healthcare provider.
Book Your Free Seminar
We run free seminars lasting approximately 2 hours for people interested in obesity surgery.
These seminars are held every 2 – 4 weeks in either Merewether or Maitland. Since the decision about whether to have surgery or which operation to choose is not easy, attendance of a seminar is compulsory for all new patients.
There is plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion. It is not necessary to have a referral to attend the seminar. If, after the seminar, you wish to follow up the possibility of having a procedure, you can make a standard appointment to see Dr Wright. For this, you will need a referral.
Appointments will not be made for the surgeon unless our seminar has been attended.
