Weight management

Medical weight loss solutions that work for you

An estimated 2 in 3 Australians aged 18 and over are overweight or obese. That’s around 12.5 million adults.

If you have battled with weight and are looking for comprehensive medical assessment and treatment options, our evidence-based Integrated Medical Weight Loss Clinic may be the solution for you.

Our unique model of care

Our multidisciplinary team – including dedicated weight loss doctors, nurses, dietitians, exercise physiologists, psychologists, endocrinologists and bariatric surgeons – work together to provide both non-surgical and surgical pathways so you can choose what’s right for you. NO REFERRAL NEEDED.

Medical weight loss services are available at our Figtree clinic.

Overweight and obesity increases the likelihood of developing many chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease, osteoarthritis, back pain, dementia, and some cancers.

There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. That’s why we have a holistic approach to weight management. We offer both non-surgical solutions as well as weight loss surgery (known as bariatric surgery) for your weight management so you can choose what’s right for you. And to ensure that your weight loss is successfully maintained, we offer a unique service that integrates with dietitians, psychologists and other allied health professionals.

Our unique Health Maintenance Programs

In collaboration with our allied health partners, we have designed a unique set of Health Maintenance Programs (HMPs) at varying tiers to help our patients reach achievable and sustainable weight loss goals which are also affordable and accessible. These HMPs are available to both our non-surgical and surgical patients and are designed to be personalised to their specific needs and situation.

What to expect on your first visit

You will see a weight loss doctor (who has skills and training in weight management) who will conduct a thorough assessment of you, which will allow us to tailor a weight loss program specific to your needs. This will include:

  • A comprehensive medical assessment to determine causes of your weight gain
  • Understanding the impact of weight gain on your physical and mental health
  • Ascertain biometrics – height, weight, waist circumference, BMI
  • Order appropriate tests
  • Set weight loss goals
  • Develop a personalised treatment plan specific to you
  • Provide medical supervision and monitoring during weight loss

Treatment plan options

  • Evidence-based diet plans
  • Lifestyle programs
  • Weight loss medications
  • Bariatric surgery services

 

Whichever treatment option you choose, our weight loss doctors will provide ongoing medical supervision and will be your partner through the whole of your weight loss journey. Our aim is not to just help you take the weight off but to help you keep it off.

Fees

Your comprehensive medical assessment with our weight loss doctors is bulk-billed – that is, no out-of-pocket cost to all medicare card holders.

    The ISHC difference

    Better healthcare.

    At the lowest cost possible.

    All our services are offered at little or no out-of-pocket cost, so you don’t have to worry about huge bills.

    Better healthcare.

    Connected and convenient for you.

    We have our GPs, GP+s, specialists and surgeons all housed within the same clinic. No waiting times and instant referral to a specialist if you need it – at little or no cost. You’ll also find access to the best diagnostic and healing technologies on site. So you can feel assured that everyone is on the same page when it comes to finding the best solution for your healthcare at ISHC.

    Better healthcare.

    Because you’re in the best hands.

    Our specialists are globally recognised for their ground-breaking research. And that research gets applied to clinical practice and surgical procedures, so our patients have access to the best and most current medical care. At Integrated Specialist Healthcare, we call this translational care – where innovation and the latest proven treatments are brought to our patients – for proven benefit. We set the standard for other medical practitioners to follow.

    Better healthcare.

    Without the red tape.

    We’ve partnered with governments and industry bodies to cut out the red tape. All you have to do is to bring your Medicare card, and in most cases, that’s all you’ll need to access to the best healthcare.

    Better healthcare.

    For today and tomorrow.

    We’ve established the not-for-profit ISHC Education and Research Foundation. We invest directly back into research, technology and education – so that we can apply the knowledge we learn today, and continue to make improvements in healthcare – for a better tomorrow for all Australians.
