Bariatric surgery

Bariatric surgery, also known as weight loss surgery, is an increasingly common treatment for obesity.


If diet, exercise and medicines haven't worked for you, bariatric surgery might be something to consider.

This type of surgery can help you achieve long-term weight loss and improve your quality of life. It can also reduce the health risks associated with some obesity-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

We have put together a team of specialists to provide multidisciplinary support for obesity including lifestyle, pharmaceutical, endoscopic and surgical options for weight loss.
