About Us

Adelaide Bariatric Centre was established in 1995 as the first obesity clinic in Adelaide. It has now performed over 4000 bariatric operations from the laparoscopic gastric band to the laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (gastric sleeve) and laparoscopic gastric bypass. Adelaide Bariatric Centre firmly believes however that the best way to achieve sustained and significant weight loss is not through surgery alone. As a result we pioneered in Adelaide the multidisciplinary approach in the management of obesity by bringing together bariatric physicians, dietitians, clinical psychologists, exercise physiologists and clinical nurses all on the same site.

Clinicians at the Adelaide Bariatric Centre have a longstanding commitment to research proven by multiple publications and presentations in this field. This includes the only series of Adelaide gastric band operations published in a peer reviewed journal right through to the recent developments with VBLOC therapy. Through our research we hope to continually look to improve what we can offer our patients in dealing with what is a very difficult disease to treat.
