Dr. Roy Brancatisano and his dedicated team have treated over 6,000 patients and have achieved outstanding, world-class results.

To Note: Most patients that select the gastric bypass as their procedure will need to undergo an endoscopy prior to their surgery. This will be at an additional cost. The item number for the endoscopy is 30473.

Some patients may be eligible to apply to the Australian Tax Office to release some of their superannuation early to assist them in paying for weight loss surgery. Read more on accessing your super early here.

Circle of Care specialists will only consider completing the early release of super paperwork for patients with a BMI of over 40. Each patient will be assessed on an individual basis before the paperwork can be completed.
