Free Seminars

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.

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, Dr Gately or Dr Ghosh. For this, you will need a referral.
