Free Seminars

We run free seminars lasting approximately 2 hours for people interested in obesity surgery. These seminars are held every 2-4 weeks usually on a Wednesday evening  in Merewether and in Maitland. See available dates below to book your seat. Numbers are limited, please call to register.

Since the decision about whether surgery is appropriate or 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.
