Bariatric Surgery: Benefits beyond weight loss
6.30pm Thursday 13 August 2020

Did you know that most people with diabetes, hypertension and obstructive sleep apnoea can have their symptoms resolved post gastric sleeve and bypass surgery?

Following National Diabetes Week (12-18 July), Strathfield Private Hospital and Bariatric Surgeon Dr David Martin are hosting a free virtual update to raise awareness of the benefits of weight loss surgery for those who suffer from Type 2 Diabetes, as well as other comorbidities including obstructive sleep apnoea, PCOS and hypertension.

This session is suitable for those who would like more information in a commitment-free setting. We will cover:

  • How bariatric surgery can assist in resolving health issues
  • Physiological reasons behind why people struggle with weight management
  • Candidacy for bariatric surgery and multidisciplinary support available
  • Appropriate long term food choices and positive eating behaviours with dietitian Simone Launt-Peters
