Why Choose Us – Advanced Surgicare
Bariatric surgery can be a highly effective tool in helping individuals who suffer from obesity lose surplus weight, so they can lead healthier and happier lives. However, in order for patients to be successful in their weight loss endeavors they need support in several areas.
First, successful bariatric patients need a weight loss surgeon who has advanced surgical training, is highly experienced and has a high patient satisfaction rate. Second, because weight loss patients must learn how to make healthy lifestyle choices for the rest of their lives, they often benefit from a comprehensive weight loss program that includes nutrition guidance, fitness advice and, in certain cases, psychological counseling.
At Advanced Surgicare, we provide Sydney weight loss surgery patients all this and more.

The Advanced Surgicare Program
Losing weight with the help of bariatric surgery allows patients to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. After weight loss, individuals are often able to resolve their obesity-related co-morbid health conditions, including heart disease, type-2 diabetes and asthma, among others. They are able to chase after their kids, travel around the world or run a race.
However, for patients to achieve this level of weight loss success and maintain their ideal weight for the rest of their lives, they must be committed to the process. Individuals must make healthy decisions, including eating smaller portions of nutritious foods and staying active. Making these lifestyle changes and being faithful to the weight loss process is not always easy. That is why Advanced Surgicare offers a comprehensive weight loss program to provide patients with guidance and support, both before surgery and after, thus maximizing patients’ chance of success.
The Advanced Surgicare program includes:
- Thorough patient screening before bariatric surgery
- Complete patient education, including information about weight loss in general, the bariatric procedure specifically and what to expect following bariatric surgery
- Direct communication among the patient, surgeon and support staff
- A regimented follow-up schedule to check patients’ progress
- Nutrition counseling
- A recommended exercise plan
- Psychological counseling, when indicated
