Why will you perform my surgery on the Sunshine Coast?

  • Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital Buderim 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.
