Obesity is a major risk factor for serious medical conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnoea, respiratory problems, arthritis, and cancer. As our meal portions become larger and our conveniences greater, we are eating more and exercising less. The natural consequence of this trend is seen in what many healthcare professionals call the obesity epidemic.

North Queensland Obesity Surgery Centre is a purpose built facility for the surgical management of morbid obesity. The long-term success of obesity surgery is dependent on having a multidisciplinary team of professionals who work together with the goal of providing safe and effective weight-loss surgery, comprehensive education, lifestyle modification, and ongoing follow-up and support.

Dieting, exercise, and medication have long been regarded as the conventional methods to achieve weight loss. These efforts may be successful in the short term, but the results rarely last and weight is often regained within one year. This translates into what is commonly called the "yo-yo syndrome" where weight is continually gained and lost, increasing the possibility of serious psychological and health consequences.

If you are obese, then the chances are that you have exhausted every weight loss option available, to the point where it may seem like there are no alternatives. However there is a solution that can help you lose weight and keep the weight off indefinitely.

Our website is created to assist you consider whether obesity surgery is a possible option for you. If you are a candidate and if you would like to achieve and maintain your goal weight, while improving your health and enhancing your quality of life, then please do not hesitate to contact us and / or speak with your family doctor.

At North Queensland Obesity Surgery Centre, We'll Help You Get There, and Stay There!
