Our Professional Philosophy
Dr Stephen Wilkinson maintains full accreditation with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons including peer review of all cases, and he maintains membership of the Obesity Surgery Society of Australia and New Zealand (OSSANZ), the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (IFSO), and undertakes ongoing research and training in Obesity Surgery.
These are critical requirements for safe and up to date anti-obesity surgery. The practice of surgery is not a ‘business venture’ to be provided at the cheapest rate. Dr Stephen Wilkinson does keep costs to patients to the minimum, but insists on maintaining professional standards reviewed by peers, and in undertaking continuous training in technical details. If you require, Dr Stephen Wilkinson will provide you details of his certification, peer review, Society membership, and research.
You will be given a full estimate of costs with corresponding Item numbers following your first consultation. It is recommended that you talk to Medicare and your private health insurer to determine personal out of pocket expenses.
