- General Surgery
The Clinical Assessment includes screening for surgical safety and involves comprehensive history taking, physical examinations, laboratory investigations, and interviews to determine your motivation for undergoing surgery. It will also show how much you understand about the procedure and post-operative demands.
We use these interviews to source information about your weight-loss and weight-gain history and current eating behaviours, which will help guide our post-operative care. We will also establish whether you have the necessary support network bariatric procedures require. Our clinical assessment will also identify any psychiatric conditions which might impair your ability to successfully handle the surgery.
