Our Multi Disciplinary Approach to Weight Loss

Optimising Outcomes For Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery

At present bariatric surgery is the most viable and cost-effective treatment for obesity and a number of other related conditions.

Although an excellent option, surgery, combined with a thorough analysis and assessment, optimises your long term result.

Here at Dr Lockie's practice we believe that behavioural, dietary, psychological, physical and medical considerations all play a role in long term weight loss.

Our research strongly suggests that our Multi Disciplinary Team approach to obesity and metabolic surgery achieves the best patients' long term outcomes. Click here to see comparative results for Dr Lockie and others for the Bariatric Surgery Registry.

The Dr Lockie Team Approach

Psychology and Dietitian Support to Improve Weight Loss

Our program assists patients with implementing and maintaining the changes required to  achieve the best possible weight loss outcomes and sustain long term weight maintenance.

  • Significant dietry, psychological and lifestyle changes are required post surgery
  • Pre and postoperative psychoeducation and intervention sessions provide our bariatric patients with practical knowedge, skills and support.
  • Dietitian follow up is scheduled at times or routine pathology to ensure patients have their pathology done and it is reviewed by the dietitian and surgeon
  • Information is provided to each patient at each intervention point (eg coping with return of hunger at 6 months or managing hair loss at 3 months)
  • Time frames set in this schedule meet and cover key milestones in a patient's progress in weight loss/metabolic surgery
