Rural Clinics

The Centre for Bariatric Surgery provides easy access statewide.

Our principal site is located in Glen Iris in Melbourne however we supplement that with two major options:

The Melbourne satellite clinics, located in Frankston, Ringwood, Preston, Windsor and soon to be established, Sunshine. Bookings to attend the satellite clinics are made via CBS main telephone number: (03) 9805 1500.

In the country our CBS Rural Associate General Practitioners are located throughout Victoria and all of them have all been trained by Professor Paul O'Brien in the follow-up care of our CBS lap-band patients. They are all interested in assisting you with weight loss and they have access to our database with your medical history. Bookings for rural appointments should be made via the respective phone numbers listed below for the rural GPs.

Lap-band surgery will still take place at The Avenue Hospital in Windsor, Melbourne but follow ups can be made by any of the CBS trained GPs below to save you time in travelling to Melbourne for regular necessary follow up appointments.
