Gastric Sleeve Surgeon Sydney

Finding a gastric sleeve surgeon in Sydney is easier now thanks to SIOS, the leading institution completing obesity surgeries up to the highest quality standards. This is a form of bariatric surgery, also called weight loss surgery. It is sometimes recommended for people who are very obese, or who have health problems caused by obesity. You should only consider gastric sleeve surgery after trying alternatives.

The surgery usually takes about 1-2 hours, and patients will usually stay in the hospital for a few days after the procedure. Most patients report that they feel better and have more energy after the surgery, and that their appetite is reduced. Many patients lose about 50% of their excess weight within the first year after surgery. Selecting our gastric sleeve surgeon in Sydney as your professional in charge of completing this procedure, you can have peace of mind knowing they will complete the process up to the most demanding standards known in the health industry. If you are considering a gastric sleeve surgery, you should talk to your doctor about your health and your weight loss goals. You should also make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure and that you are willing to make the necessary lifestyle changes after the surgery.

The first step is typically to try changes to your food intake and your daily activity and exercise. There are also some medicines that can help people lose weight. Surgery is usually thought about only after these other options have been tried. Losing weight after gastric sleeve surgery can help reduce problems like Type 2 diabetes, asthma episodes and blood pressure and can help improve heart health. Do not hesitate to contact us if you want more detailed information about our services as the professional gastric sleeve surgeon in Sydney you need.

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.

DO YOU NEED WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY ?

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.
