ANZMOSS are committed to creating equal opportunity for all patients suffering obesity access to bariatric surgical care.
The Public Bariatric Surgery Initiative seeks to increase the provision of bariatric surgery in our public hospital systems.
Currently access to surgery for those unable to afford private care is limited by the number of services available. This need not be. Bariatric surgery can be delivered effectively, safely and sustainably in our public hospitals.
ANZMOSS surgeons are passionate in getting care to patients in need and see this initiative as a major priority.
