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.
Surgery Option Information
We run free-of-charge information evenings in our Charlestown clinic after hours, usually on a monthly basis.
These sessions are given by the surgeons who perform the operations, and it is an ideal time to come along and ask any questions that you might need answered to help you make the decision about whether bariatric surgery is the answer for you.
Bariatric surgery is not right for everyone.
The Body Mass Index (BMI) is a simple measure of obesity based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women.
