PATIENT INFORMATION

Bariatric surgery is a significant and life changing decision. Like most people considering surgery, you probably have many questions about it. These might range from whether you even qualify surgery, to the hospital process, and right through to what life will be like after surgery.

This is understandable. With major decisions you need information – knowledge is power. We aim to answer many of your most common questions about surgery on our website below.

However, nothing beats getting answers in person. If you have questions which you don’t see here, or you want to know your individual suitability and potential outcomes of weight loss surgery, the best thing to do is give us a call. Make a time to come in for a chat with either James or Garth. Both surgeons are more than happy to discuss your unique situation – with absolutely no obligation.
