Obesity Surgery

Rockhampton weight loss surgeon

Gastric sleeve surgery is a form of weight loss surgery performed on people who experience obesity-related health problems, or who are very obese, that reduces the size of the stomach – reducing hunger and causing the patient to feel full after eating a small amount.

Over 80% of weight loss surgeries in Australia being performed are Sleeve Gastrectomies.

Dr Andrew Russell and his surgical team have been performing this surgery here locally at Mater Private Hospital Rockhampton for over ten years with lots of successful outcomes for their patients and the follow up support post surgery to ensure you get results.
