The Centre

North Queensland Obesity Surgery Centre is a purpose built facility for the surgical management of morbid obesity. Our rooms are adjacent to North Queensland Minimally Invasive Surgery in the Mater Medical Centre, Townsville.

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.

We utilise equipment specifically designed for bariatric patients including examination beds and weight scales.

Laparoscopic procedures are performed at the Mater Hospital, Pimlico and endoscopic procedures are also performed at the Townsville Day Surgery.  At times, procedures are carried out at other medical facilities. 

Patient comfort, convenience and wellbeing is very important to us and we understand some people experience nervousness, slight anxiety or apprehension facing their obesity. Our focus is you and we will do our best to ease any unsettling emotions.

At North Queensland Obesity Surgery Centre, we'll help you get there, and stay there!

SKYPE Connect is available for NQOSC post surgery follow up appointments.

Evidence proves regular follow up appointments increase successful results for surgical weight loss patients and interventional weight loss patients (balloon).

We have dedicated a SKYPE account for our patients who reside or work outside Townsville suburbs who need appointment flexibility.

If you would like to use this service, please email or telephone (07) 47252833 to arrange this service when your next follow up appointment is due.
