Improving your long-term health

Many of the 100,000 Australians with a Gastric Band chose it because it can help them manage the health challenges that come with obesity. Excess weight is a risk factor for diabetes, heart disease and some cancers. It can also make it more difficult to control chronic conditions.

Real life success stories

mother & child

“The turning point for me was having my daughter and not being able to keep up with her, even when she was younger. I really wanted to make sure I led by example for her but also so I could keep up with her, have a good life and show her how much fun life can be. She loves the fact that I can now run, chase and jump after her. I just have so much more energy to play with her.”
