Weight Loss Surgery: All the facts

At The Surgical Weight Loss Centre We Believe Being Educated About Any Potential Weight Loss Surgery Is Vital For Any Potential Queensland Patients

Being knowledgeable about any prospective weight loss surgery is something that we encourage for all of our Queensland patients. Also known as bariatric surgery, the term ‘weight loss surgery’ encompasses a number of different procedures that are tasked with manipulating the way that food is digested and absorbed. Making the decision to have weight loss surgery is certainly one that shouldn’t be taken lightly and that is why it’s so important to learn as much as you can on the topic.

What Is Bariatric Surgery?

Here at The Surgical Weight Loss Centre, our highly experienced team of health professionals, headed up by Dr Jordaan, offer expert treatment and care in four weight loss surgery procedures. These are the sleeve gastrectomy, gastric bypass, gastric banding and the newest addition to our techniques, SADI (Loop Duodenal Switch Procedure). Each of these is performed by Dr Jordaan and his invaluable 25+ years of experience as a specialist upper gastrointestinal surgeon makes him one of the foremost authorities on weight loss surgery. Working closely with you, we will thoroughly examine your situation thoroughly before tailoring a treatment plan that we believe will provide you with the results you desire and be in your best long-term interests.

Is Weight Loss Surgery Safe?

As any surgeon will tell you, there are always risks associated with any kind of procedure and the same is true of bariatric surgery. That being said, the risk of any complications arising during your surgery is extremely low, somewhere between 1-2% and when you are in the hands of an experienced surgeon like Dr Jordaan you can rest assured you are receiving the very highest quality of care.
