About Advanced Surgicare - South Eastern Sydney

Welcome to Advanced SurgicareBariatric and Weight Loss Surgery in Sydney

Welcome to Advanced Surgicare, where Dr. V. Kuzinkovas treats individuals who suffer from obesity and are seeking bariatric surgery in Sydney. 

As a certified Bariatric Surgeon of Excellence, Dr. Kuzinkovas is highly skilled in a range of weight loss surgery procedures, including sleeve gastrectomy surgery, gastric bypass surgery and adjustable gastric banding surgery with the Lap Band. He also has extensive experience performing revision bariatric surgery for patients who failed to achieve their desired weight loss or suffered complications with the initial weight loss procedure. In addition, Dr. Kuzinkovas utilizes the less-invasive laparoscopic approach to bariatric surgery, as long as it is medically appropriate for the patient.

Improving Quality of Life With the Help of Weight Loss Surgery

Individuals suffering from obesity often experience weight-related physical and psychological limitations. Once patients begin losing the excess weight with the help of bariatric surgery, however, they start to notice an improvement, not only in their health, but in their overall wellbeing as well. 

Many obese patients suffer from obesity-related health problems, known as “co-morbidities.” Potential co-morbidities include type-2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma, sleep apnea and more. If left untreated, co-morbid health conditions can be dangerous. Fortunately, with successful weight loss following bariatric surgery, many patients are able to resolve their co-morbid health concerns.

Suffering from obesity can also take a serious toll on a person’s psychological wellbeing. Obese individuals may have low self-esteem and suffer from depression. Thankfully, losing the extra weight with weight loss surgery can help patients live a more fulfilling life — one that includes travelling, chasing after their children or grandchildren, or simply running up a long flight of stairs or riding a rollercoaster. Leading a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life often leads to an improvement in one’s mental and emotional health. 

Advanced Surgicare’s Comprehensive Weight Loss Program

The journey toward improved health and a more fulfilling life is not always easy, but Dr. Kuzinkovas and the team at Advanced Surgicare are here to help. The bariatric team is dedicated to helping patients achieve their weight loss goals and maintain their ideal body weight so they can experience the enriched quality of life that accompanies making healthy lifestyle choices. 

To help patients accomplish these objectives, Advanced Surgicare offers a comprehensive weight loss program that extends beyond the operating room. Each Sydney bariatric surgery patient receives a thorough preoperative screening, detailed information about the procedure, exercise education, nutrition advice, a structured postoperative follow-up schedule and psychological counseling, as needed.
