Weight-loss Surgery

Weight-loss surgery (WLS) has proven to be a successful method for the treatment of morbid obesity. Surgical options have continued to evolve and Southern Obesity Surgery (based in Christchurch) is pleased to be able to offer patients a variety of safe and effective weight-loss surgery using the latest in Key hole or Laparoscopic Obesity Surgery techniques. Combined with effective long-term patient management, the surgery can offer the necessary intervention to allow obese patients to get control of their weight and improve their health.

Minimally Invasive

Our surgeons use laparoscopic techniques (using small incisions and long-shafted instruments) to perform the weight-loss surgery. This approach offers reduced post-operative pain, a shortened hospital stay and a quicker recovery.

Types of surgeries offered

Our surgeons offer a variety of weight-loss surgeries and work closely with each patient to determine the best individual approach. Our surgeons specialise in

  • laparoscopic adjustable gastric band
  • laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and
  • laparoscopic gastric bypass.  

Combined with effective long-term patient management, the surgery can allow a person to manage their weight, improve their health and get control of their life.
