Obesity Surgery Brisbane is a practise devoted to the surgical management of morbid obesity. Our team aims to provide all patients with a warm and friendly environment to obtain the information that they need to make the important decisions required to proceed with surgery. Dr Hopkins, along with a team consisting of nurses, dietitians and a psychologist work together to offer a variety of procedures which cater for many different lifestyles and circumstances. The most common procedures Dr Hopkins performs are adjustable gastric banding, sleeve gastrectomy and Roux en Y gastric bypass, as well as hernia repairs and gallbladder removals.
Our Nursing Team consists of Christine Tallis and Donna Swift who both provide valuable nursing support with initial assessment as well as an initial consultation and provision of the information required.
The first step is to see the surgeon, Dr George Hopkins, who will explain in detail the concept behind the procedure, the success that has been had and the potential problems that can occur. Dr George Hopkins has ran his own practice for over 10 years and provides very diligent and on-going post-operative follow-up care, in close association with your Referring Practitioner.
Ms Rachel Moore, Margaret Brooke, Michelle Graham, Libby McBride and Rachel Myhill are our Clinic Dietitians who provide vital information to patients concerning the dietary requirements entailed in living with a weight loss procedure. Depending on your situation, you may also be asked to start a pre-operative weight loss diet. To find out more, visit www.intensivweightloss.com.
