I specialise in working with obese patients to help with weight loss, and the many metabolic diseases (high BP, High Cholesterol, Diabetes etc.) that accompany extreme obesity. I work with them to implement a change in lifestyle, to getting them active and enjoying exercises, as well as the added benefits of weight loss.
This exercise needs to work in conjunction with a manageable diet plan. I also work with the Chrysalis Clinic
“The Chrysalis Clinic at the Life Kingsbury Hospital in Claremont, Cape Town offers bariatric surgery (surgical treatment for morbid obesity) within the context of a multidisciplinary team of medical and paramedical specialists. The team comprises endocrinologists, critical care physician, dieticians, psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, biokineticist and two accredited laparoscopic bariatric surgeons. A professional nurse serves as the clinic coordinator. The team assesses patients to determine whether surgery is an appropriate treatment option for their obesity and, if so, prepares them for the surgery and assists them with their journey after the surgery.”
