We run free seminars lasting approximately 2 hours for people interested in obesity surgery. These Seminars are held on a regular basis usually on a Wednesday evening at a venue in Merewether and a Wednesday evening at a venue in Maitland. Since the decision about which operation to choose is not easy, attendance of a seminar is compulsory for all new patients, we strongly believe this is in your best interests.
Appointments will not be made for the doctor unless our seminar has been attended.
Laparoscopic gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass are the three most commonly performed procedures worldwide to help people with severe obesity lose weight safely. Which operation is best for you is not always an easy decision and we strongly advise you to look at all these procedures before committing yourself.
