We are experts in assessment and management of the “failing” bariatric patient

With a gastrointestinal physiology laboratory and the full range of operations offered, we can manage the difficult problems.


We work closely with dietitians

You will be provided with close preoperative and postoperative support.

Our Promise to You

It is well recognised that regular medical follow-up is required after bariatric surgery, particularly after LapBand surgery. Without this follow-up, results are suboptimal and complication rates are increased.

Therefore, we have structured our program to ensure that there are minimal barriers to follow-up. After your surgery, all bariatric-surgery related consultations are free to you, as long as you keep your private health insurance current. We will not charge you to manage any complication which might arise as a result of your bariatric surgery, now or in the future, again as long as you keep your private health insurance current. Band adjustments and Band check-ups are similarly free to you. The reason we do this is to remove any disincentive to you coming back, so that we can ensure your results are as good as possible.

The dietitians with whom we work will offer a similar program. They will usually offer a package of five consultations without any further costs.

The fine print

We do need to point out that this promise only applies to fees charged by us. If you need to come into hospital again, the hospital itself might charge you out-of-pocket fees. So too may any other specialists you might need to see in case of problems. Also, some costs are not covered by our promise, such as gym fees, behavioral modification, nutritional supplementation and body contouring surgeries to remove excess skin, lift sagging body areas and improve loose muscles or treat fat deposits.
