Weight Loss Surgery on the Gold Coast

At our clinic we aim to provide a warm and friendly environment where you can discuss your needs with our team of highly qualified professionals. We offer a full range of counselling and support for your weight loss journey.

There are many different types of surgical weight loss solutions available to Gold Coast patients, and each has its own different components. Some options would be ideal for some patients and not suitable for others for a variety of reasons. Currently worldwide the gold standard and most commonly performed procedure for weight loss is the laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. In Australia the most common procedure currently is the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. It must be recognised that each procedure has different mechanisms for weight loss and different potential problems, both in the immediate post-operative period and longer term. These issues for all types of procedures will be discussed when you see us for an appointment.

Dr Free is one of the most experienced laparoscopic weight loss surgeons on the Gold Coast today. He has trained heavily in this field in Australia as well as Vienna and London. His training has included a large number of complex surgical procedures in tertiary hospital institutions dealing specifically with complications of weight loss surgery. His training has been part of an internationally recognised training program through the Obesity Surgical Society of Australia and NZ. www.ossanz.com.au Dr Free has been involved in many research projects and has presented at national and international Obesity Surgery meetings.

You must be aware of all options and the risks of each before considering the surgery.
