The History of Adelaide Bariatric Centre

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 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 holistic support programme for the management of obesity. This has resulted in some of the best outcomes for patients with weight problems.

The Adelaide Bariatric Centre was established by bariatric surgeons Professor Jim Toouli and Dr Lilian Kow in 1995. Bariatric surgeon Dr Jacob Chisholm joined the group in 2010. The surgeons work closely with bariatric practitioners, dietitians, exercise physiologists, psychologists and bariatric nurses all on the same site and working to the same goal.

Clinicians at the Adelaide Bariatric Centre have a longstanding commitment to research proven by multiple publications and presentations in this field. This includes the following highlights:
