Tuggerah Lakes Weight Loss

Tuggerah Lakes Weight Loss clinic is run from Kanwal Medical Complex, directly accross the road from Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital and Wyong public hospital and only an hours drive south from Newcastle.  

The service is run so that patients can see their surgeon as well as their dietician on the same day, without having to make extra visits.  This is for both preoperative visits as well as post-operative visits.  Patients are usually seen within 1-2 weeks of referral.  

Operating lists are run regularly at Tuggerah Lakes Private Hospital and there is no waiting list.
