If you’re tired of the discomfort and pain of being obese, the challenges that come with managing your weight-related health issues and the emotional distress that can come with being overweight, Dr Benedict Mackay can help.
We know that being obese isn’t about laziness; it’s a complex metabolic disease with many contributing factors and it requires a modern solution.
Obesity is a chronic disease. Surgery is only part of the cure and it shouldn’t be considered the easy way out. A multidisciplinary approach and regular clinical follow up gives the best long term results for patients.
As part of Weight Loss Solutions Sunshine Coast, Dr Benedict Mackay’s patients have access to 24-hour care, 365 days of the year. Each bariatric operation is conducted at Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital and is attended by two specialist surgeons.
Dr Benedict Mackay works with your GP and a team of allied health professionals, including experienced nurses, dietitians, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists and psychologists, to support you to lose weight and keep it off for good.
