Auckland Weight Loss Surgery specialises in the surgical management of obesity.
We offer the full complement of weight loss procedures, including gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgery (also known as a sleeve gastrectomy), allowing us to select the surgery best suited to each patient.
Our surgeons Grant Beban, Richard Babor, Jon Morrow and Nick Evennett are specifically trained in obesity surgery for weight loss and perform these operations frequently. They work together to optimise patient care.
At Auckland Weight Loss Surgery, Grant, Richard, Jon and welcoming Nicholas Evennett to the surgical team, all work as part of a multidisciplinary team that provides an holistic approach to obesity surgery. Other team members include our clinical nurse specialist, dietitian and psychologist.
You can contact us directly to make an appointment for a consultation. You do not require a referral from your GP.
