Have You Been Struggling With Your Weight For FAR TOO LONG?

Are you finding it hard to drop the kilos despite your best efforts? Have you had enough of your body resisting everything you try?

Obesity in Australia is now at epidemic proportions with over 60% of the population now battling this chronic disease.  The health risks associated with obesity are increasing rapidly every year. Doctors are discovering countless relatable diseases including heart disease, diabetes, sleep apnoea, depression, high blood pressure, cancer and many more!

Obesity Surgeries, specifically the Gastric Sleeve Surgery, are being considered as one of the most effective weight loss options for the obesity epidemic. This surgery is designed specifically to help you return to a healthy weight and achieve your weight loss goals after all other options have failed.

A Team That Cares…

Meet patient Nola Sargeant. She struggled with the merry go round of dieting, loosing weight and putting it back on again.

“I just knew it was the correct thing to do and after meeting Patrick, I didn’t even bother looking elsewhere as he just made me feel so comfortable throughout all my procedures. The entire team here definitely care about myself as a patient and also as a person.”

Meet patient Suzette. After hearing her friends joke about going on The Biggest Loser TV show she realised it was time for a serious change.

“The impact from having the surgery has been enormous – I’ve lost half my body weight. I’ve gone from being afraid of sitting on chairs for the fear of them collapsing underneath me to now walking into any clothing store and buying whatever I want.  And 11 years later the team are always there for me – they are always welcoming and always helpful, nothing is ever a problem!”
