Gastric Band Surgery Sydney

A gastric band surgery, also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, is a minimally invasive weight loss procedure that involves the surgical placement of an inflatable band around the top of the stomach to create a small stomach pouch. Here at SIOS we specialise in completing this type of gastric band surgery in Sydney with a superior caring approach and making sure our clients feel safe and confident during the entire procedure. The pouch is connected to the small intestine, resulting in a reduced calorie intake and a feeling of fullness sooner.

With a team of experts like the surgeons we are glad to have at SIOS, you can rest assured knowing that the entire gastric band surgery in Sydney will be carried out according to the most demanding standards known to date in the health industry. Before you decide to undergo a gastric band surgery in Sydney, you will need to meet with our bariatric surgeon to discuss your weight loss goals and health history. You will also need to undergo a number of tests to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

Understanding Bariatric Obesity Surgery

Every person and their body are different.  What works for one person, may not work for another.  There are many different surgeries available but finding the right one for you that is safe and healthy is our utmost priority.  Your health and lifestyle as well as food and weight concerns need to be carefully considered in the decision of which obesity surgery is best for you.


Depending on your individual weight and health, you may be a candidate for weight loss surgery. In order to determine whether this weight loss option is for you, take these first steps:

Medicare-Funded Sleep Studies

A good night’s sleep is important for good health and also for maintaining a healthy weight. Obesity may contribute to sleep problems such as sleep apnea, and sleep problems can also contribute to obesity. SIOS offers sleep studies, fully funded by Medicare.


Obesity surgery isn’t a quick fix, it requires a lifelong commitment to improving your health. Our better health journey program supports you with care, empathy and non-judgement from the SIOS team of allied health professionals.
