Obesity Surgery Follow-up

With weight loss surgery, follow up is very important. There is good evidence that follow up leads to improved long-term results with this surgery. The operation is a great tool to help you lose weight, but maintaining the weight loss is obviously the goal.

Dr Russell personally sees patients for five years after surgery, to share their journey and help where he can. We also have a dedicated support group for our practice patients only on Facebook. We are here to help you and believe that maintaining contact as you negotiate this journey is very important.

A combination of our clinic and our wonderful dieticians is all about supporting you to give you the best possible chance of a good long-term result.

All follow up appointments are bulk billed.
