Auckland Weight Loss Surgery specialises in the surgical management of obesity.
We offer the full complement of weight loss procedures, including gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery (also known as a sleeve gastrectomy), allowing us to select the surgery best suited to each patient.
Our surgeons Grant Beban, Richard Babor and Jon Morrow are specifically trained in obesity surgery for weight loss and perform these operations frequently. They work together to optimise patient care.
Grant, Richard and Jon work as part of a multidisciplinary team at Auckland Weight Loss Surgery that includes a clinical nurse specialist, dietician and psychologist to offer a holistic approach to obesity surgery.
You can contact us directly to make an appointment for a consultation. You do not require a referral from your GP.
Surgery for morbid obesity (bariatric surgery) has helped many people lose more weight than is possible by diet, and maintain that weight loss. It can dramatically improve quality of life and improve medical conditions associated with obesity.
Bariatic bypass surgery may help you if
your weight is significantly greater than you would like it to be
you find it difficult to lose weight by diet and exercise
you are concerned about the health consequences of your weight
your weight affects your quality of life
“My decision to have weight loss surgery has had a profound affect on my life. I believe that all aspects of my life have improved and would find it hard to think of a downside to having surgery. The frustration of years of dieting recedes into the memory banks, and I now just begun to enjoy life once again. I have no regrets apart from not making the decision earlier to have surgery.”
