Super-super obese and gastric sleeve surgery

Posted on 26 Feb, 2013

At Central Coast Surgery, Dr Ken Wong has performed many gastric sleeves on patients weighing more than 200 kilograms, with body mass index greater than 60.

These patients are often quite challenging.

This link shows a video of how a 220kg man is set up for gastric sleeve surgery.

This is high risk surgery due to the sheer size but it also means that you are never too heavy to benefit from weight loss surgery. It is not unusual for the 200 plus kilograms patient to lose about 60-70 kilos in the first twelve months.

Dr Ken Wong also performs weight loss surgery for patients from the Newcastle area. For more information visit the Newcastle lap band surgery page or the Newcastle gastric sleeve surgery page.
