Losing weight is a challenge many of us are facing everyday. While we know that healthy eating and physical activity are important for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, sometimes we need a helping hand to achieve our goals and improve both our health and wellbeing.
Our weight is determined by a number of factors including genetics, behaviour and our environment. Our busy lifestyles, work and family pressures can all impact upon our ability to conquer weight management issues, which are fast becoming one of the greatest contributing factors to chronic disease burden on our society.
Weight related conditions including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, infertility, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obstructive sleep apnoea all benefit significantly with sustained weight reduction.
We know that being overweight contributes to many major health risks, whilst the benefits of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight are numerous.
With obesity now recognised as a chronic health condition, we need to provide people with individualised, long-term management initiatives and ongoing support. In some situations, when all other weight loss avenues have been exhausted, a surgical approach may offer a successful long-term solution.
Central Highlands Surgeons has been managing surgical weight loss for more than nine years. We aim to continually update and improve both our knowledge and services.
Our focus is team-orientated, with ongoing education and consultation with our surgeons, nurses, physician, dietitian and psychologists. Each person's journey is different from others and having a personal, individualised approach is crucial.
We believe we can assist our patients in achieving lifelong weight management success by providing a compassionate, caring and supportive team. We recognises that private, non-judgemental communication is a vital part of a successful weight loss journey.
Importantly, successful weight loss not only improves a patients medical health, it also has a significant impact on their quality of life, mental health and general out look on life.
