Dr Bernd Lorenzen - Bariatric Practitioner

Gastric Sleeve Practitioner - Dr Bernd Lorenzen

Dr Bernd Lorenzen has been dedicated to the care of overweight people for almost a decade. He has been involved extensively in the operative care, but now focuses solely on the preoperative assessment and post operative care and management of the gastric bands, sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass.

Dr Lorenzen has extensive prior hospital experience, in all facets of hospital care. He has worked in all of Adelaide’s major hospitals, as well as in rural and remote areas. He went on to develop a high quality general practice service, until his interest in overweight management grew. He has also been extensively involved in general standards, having been the past Chairman of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, and having spent 9 years on the board overseeing general practice training in South Australia. He has held positions within the SA Health Commission. He  has also been involved in medical research at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and remains a trustee of one of its research foundations.

Dr Lorenzen is married with two children. He has an avid interest in photography.
