Best Weight Loss Surgery Surgeon in Sydney


Bariatric surgeries like gastric bypass, Lap Band, and sleeve gastrectomy  are major procedures, but an expert surgeon can perform them safely and with low complication risks. Dr V. Kuzinkovas is a leading bariatric surgeon who has helped patients to lose dramatic amounts of weight following weight-loss surgery. Find out why he is Sydney’s most trusted bariatric specialist.


Prior to becoming a leading Sydney bariatric surgeon, Dr Kuzinkovas completed many years of formal education. After receiving his undergraduate medical degree (MBBS), he did a postgraduate doctorate research fellowship at the Department of Surgery at the University of Berne, Switzerland. Dr Kuzinkovas worked in line with Professor Markus Büchler, a world-renowned expert in upper gastrointestinal and pancreatic surgery. As an academic fellow he did laboratory-based research in the field of laparoscopy and surgical immunology, culminating in a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. Next, he earned an MRCSEd and FRCSEd from the West Midlands University Teaching Hospitals in the UK. Most of his fellowships and training focused on bariatric surgeries — a perfect path for his current career. The UK specialist surgical qualifications were accredited by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, and he was awarded an FRACS.

Accreditation and Affiliations

Dr Kuzinkovas is accredited by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons. He is an active member of prestigious organizations, including the Australian & New Zealand Metabolic and Obesity Surgery Society, the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders, and the Australia & New Zealand Gastro Oesophageal Surgery Association. He is also  committed to helping train the next generation of surgeons in various teaching positions.

Furthermore, he has hospital privileges at some of the area’s elite medical institutions, including St. George Public, St. George Private Norwest Private and East Sydney Private Hospitals.


Dr Kuzinkovas has performed more than 5,000 laparoscopic surgeries throughout his career. Rather than specializing in a single surgery and encouraging patients to choose that surgery, he can look at each patient individually and devise a surgical plan that both prioritizes safety and achieves the best results. His nuanced understanding of bariatric surgeries allows him to make appropriate recommendations.

This expertise is a big reason why Dr Kuzinkovas is one of Sydney’s most popular surgeons for primary and revision bariatric surgery. Revision procedures are much more complicated since organs and tissues have already been operated on, but Dr Kuzinkovas knows how to improve the results while avoiding potential complications.

Happy Patients

The real proof that a bariatric surgeon is the best is in how enthusiastic his patients are about their experience. Dr Kuzinkovas has glowing reviews from patients on many platforms. His patients are impressed not only with his surgical credentials, but also the kindness he extends in every interaction. He cares for his patients’ wellbeing before, during, and long after their surgery.

Amazing Support Team

Dr Kuzinkovas understands that his patients need ongoing support to be successful in their weight loss journey. That is why he surrounds himself with a support team that includes a bariatric physician, registered dietitians, and a clinical psychologist. Together, the staff helps to provide counseling and an effective nutrition and exercise plan that helps patients to thrive and attain their weight loss goals.
