Dr Lockie Takes a Team Oriented Approach

8th November 2014

Dr Phil Lockie's surgery takes a team approach to patients to help improve patient outcomes.

This multi-disiplinary approach includes a pre-operative specialist, dietitian and pyschologist in addition to our surgeon Dr Lockie.

Additionally, our support group meetings are managed by our psychologist and have proven to be an invaluable asset once the initial postoperative recovery is over. Monthly guest speakers help provide more detailed information and resources to attendees.

Dietary Advancement Post Sleeve Gastrectomy

2nd May 2013

It has come to my attention that a Brisbane-based practice is providing their laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy patients with literature whereby solid foods are being introduced within the first week following their procedure. We wish to advise that we do not support this instruction and that we strongly recommend you follow our liquid dietary guidelines after your surgery.

You are provided with clear fluids in hospital and then progress to free fluids (or nourishing liquids) for 2 weeks duration when you are discharged home. This allows your stomach pouch to heal, reduces the risk of potential leaks and signficantly decreases any discomfort or pain that is associated with eating solids too soon after the surgery. It also ensures you are able take in sufficient volumes for hydration and adequate protein for good recovery. This intervention is evidence-based and is reinforced by our many years of experience in this field.
