For some, lifestyle change and different food choices are enough to maximise their health potential. Some have had temporary success with diet and exercise but need to get away from yo-yo dieting. Some have significant medical problems such as fatty liver disease or diabetes and need rapid metabolic control to minimise the chance of life-threatening complications in the future.
For the young or for the elderly, surgery might not be the best option.
Don’t let that dissuade you from talking to us, as we can often put in place a program that has significant health benefits without requiring surgery.
Occasionally surgical options fail, and sometimes further operations are required. If you have previously had problems with a vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG), fixed gastric band, or a “slipped” or eroded lap band, we are more than happy to see you to assess the options and give recommendations.
