Why is your surgery performed on the Sunshine Coast? 

  • Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital and Noosa Private Hospital meet the standards that we expect to manage complex surgical procedures such as those performed for weight loss. 
  • These hospitals are Level 6 surgical hospitals with intensive care units
  • Both hospitals have a high-volume bariatric service. This leads to experienced anaesthetists, theatre staff, medical consultants, ward staff and dietitians. This is imperative for the safety of our patients. 
  • It has been proven that patient outcomes (including safety and long term results) are better when surgery has been performed in high-volume bariatric centres. 
  • Two surgeons will perform your operation. Both surgeons live on the Sunshine Coast and this means our team are available around the clock for peri-operative support. 

Sunshine Coast Surgeons Trained in Australia and New Zealand

Our surgical team, are Dr James Askew and Dr Garth McLeod. They perform all bariatric surgeries including:

  • Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy;
  • Laparoscopic gastric bypass;
  • and Laparoscopic adjustable gastric band
  • as well as intra-gastric balloon (endoscopically placed)

Our surgeons are fully qualified general surgeons with further sub-specialty training in bariatric and upper gastrointestinal surgery. Both trained in Brisbane and in high-volume specialist bariatric centres.

They perform all operations as a surgery team, regardless of which surgeon or Sunshine Coast hospital location you choose. This means you get the unique benefit of two qualified specialist surgeons during your operation.
