Sydney Bariatric Clinic provides a non-judgmental, friendly service to help patients achieve long-term success with weight loss surgeryFind out more...
The Sydney Bariatric Clinic team understand that losing substantial weight (and keeping it off!) is very difficult for most people due to a variety of factors - hormonal, genetic, environmental and others.
For people in these situations who have struggled with weight issues for many years, surgery is a very real option. With modern advances in surgical techniques such as key-hole surgery the recovery time and results are excellent and often the serious health risks of obesity can be reversed.
Combining a team approach to treatment and providing dietary and nutritional advice as well as personalised lifestyle training will result in the best results from weight-loss surgery.
This is the philosophy behind Sydney Bariatric Clinic.
Sleeve Gastrectomy procedure involves removing the lateral 3/4 of the stomach with a stapling device. It can be done laparoscopically
In Gastric Bypass procedure, a small stomach pouch is created to restrict food intake. Next, a Y-shaped section of the small intestine is attached to the pouch to create the bypass
An adjustable silicone band is placed around the top of the stomach to restrict the passage of food, which results in early fullness
Operations which include gastric band removal, anti-reflux surgery, gallstone surgery and hernia repair.
