About Weight & Metabolic Solutions Australia

We remain open as an Essential Allied Health Service.

Weight & Metabolic Solutions Australia is committed to supporting your health at this challenging time. To support our community of patients and help reduce the spread of COVID-19 we have implemented new appointment and clinic policies and procedures as per the National Guideline.

Nutrition, Psychology and Psychiatry

Our Dietitian, Lisa Bartzis and Psychologist Hayley Fung and Psychiatrist Dr Anastasia Braun and Psychiatrist Dr George Bruxner are still seeing their regular patients who are in need of support, but under strict COVID-19 Infection Control standards.

General and Bariatric Patients

We will also continue to provide ongoing consultation for our general and bariatric patients, as well as continue to offer initial consultation for new patients. We will bulk bill all consultations with a valid referral.  Without being able to predict what will happen from week to week, we are unable to provide definite surgery dates, however will be able to place you on the waiting list. If the suspension of elective surgeries are lifted anywhere in this year, we will provide you a reduced fee coded COVID19.

Duty of Care and Support to our patients through the stress...

The doctor made me feel comfortable with everything he explained to me

5 50 Gastroenterologist Consultation

His staff were excellent at answering any questions even before I made my appointment. Dr Braun made me feel comfortable with everything he explained to me.

I wanted a skilled surgeon and he nailed it

5 50 Gastric Bypass

Saw Dr. Braun for a mini gastric bypass with minimiser ring. I have lost 90kg in 9 months. He is European heritage so seems very blunt, but I didn't want a warm and fluffy buddy, I wanted a skilled surgeon that could do my surgery safely and confidently. He nailed it. The more I see him and his team, the warmer and fluffier he gets. The 12-month support program is a pleasure to deal with all of my food issues to ensure I get the most out of my surgery. Would definitely recommend Dr. Braun to others.

I ended up having to have surgery to remove my gall bladder

4 50 Gallbladder Removal

I suffered from severe gall bladder inflammation and took myself to Holy Spirit Northside Private Emergency. I was subsequently admitted to Holy Spirit Northside with a severe inflammation of my gall bladder. I was placed in Dr Will Braun's care.

I ended up having to have surgery to remove my gall bladder.

I was not able to see Dr Braun before surgery, which was some 12 hours after admission.
I met Dr Braun immediately prior to surgery and we talked through my diagnosis, treatment options and risks, I felt comfortable to go ahead with the surgery.
Dr Braun saw me this morning after my surgery last night, he told me what happened and answered my questions.

I reckon he's a good surgeon and a good guy. I'd see him again if I needed surgery.
