The Tasmanian Anti-Obesity Surgery Centre & Your Health Hub have formed a collaboration to present you with an opportunity to reach your weight loss potential.
We will assist you to reclaim the life you deserve!
As a collaborative team we recognise that after bariatric surgery there are still many hurdles to be conquered to ensure your desired weight loss is achieved and it is sustainable.
In having bariatric surgery you have made a significant sacrifice emotionally, financially & physically. The band is only one tool. Without the complete package it would be like purchasing your dream car and not servicing it or filling it with the correct fuel.
Your Health Hub
Your Health Hub is a Holistic Wellness Centre aimed at caring for the whole patient – body, mind and soul. We are located in the heart of Bellerive and we have a full suite of allied health professionals available to assist you with your journey. We offer a 12 week Program that is medically led by our Nurse Practitioner Lisa Sproule. Lisa has had a breadth of experience in primary health care, chronic disease management, aged care and weight loss.
The team at YourHealth Hub will be working closely alongside Mr Steven Wilkinson and his team at the Tasmanian Anti-Obesity Surgery Centre and your General Practitioner. Together, they will ensure all of your lap band management requirements are adequately met and you receive the education and support needed in regards to the mechanics and successful use of this device.
