Brisbane General & Obesity Surgery was founded from a deep desire to help improve our patients’ quality of life and give them a unique, enjoyable experience in the process. Our dedicated surgeons and team members are committed to achieving the best outcomes for their patients.
Our mission is to put our patients first, always. Our holistic care model ensures that every patient receives the care they need before, during, and after a procedure. This comprehensive support allows our clients to drastically improve their health, introduce new habits and, ultimately, make long-lasting change in their lifestyles.
Part of what makes our surgery so unique is our ability to recognise each patient’s individual struggles and goals and adapt our approach to help them. From simple goals, like being able to run around with the kids, to more ambitious goals like running a marathon, we’re here to help.
