Understanding and Support

We understand that considering surgery can be challenging for many reasons.

At Perth Obesity Surgery, we will explain every step of the way at your pace. We make sure you are fully informed and comfortable with the decision. A consultation is not an obligation and so we welcome discussions about options and plans without expectations.

You should never be uncertain of what to expect. You will be given comprehensive information sheets of what to expect before and after surgery. You should always feel free to call if you are not confident in this.

Being overweight or obese is associated with many chronic health problems… diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure but there are many more.

By reducing one’s weight every part of life can be improved and at Perth Obesity Surgery, our goal is to improve lives.
