I am Dr Michael Crawford
I am a very experienced Laparoscopic & Bariatric Surgeon. I have extensive experience helping patients lose weight through keyhole surgery since 2005.
I offer ethical, patient focused, compassionate care and will discuss the best surgical option for you.
Obesity surgery works through eating less mainly because it leads to a sustained decrease in appetite.
I perform Sleeve Gastrectomy, and both types of Gastric Bypass operations.
I am happy to see patients who require revision surgery.
While I perform other advanced laparoscopic and open surgery, obesity surgery is a large and important part of my practice. I keep my skills tuned, and maintain a long-term healthy commitment to the 'doctor patient relationship' that I develop with my patients.
I am motivated by seeing successful and sustainable weight loss in my patients. It is not quite curing cancer, but it is up there.
I work with a fantastic team of Dietitians, Nurses and Anaesthetists.
Surgery is at The Mater Hospital (North Sydney), a Premier Private Hospital
My staff are friendly and helpful, give them a call now and see for yourself, or send an email and they will call you back.
Satisfaction levels are very high.
BMI >35 means you are likely to be eligible
How heavy should I be for weight loss surgery?
A BMI >40 alone, or a BMI >35 with a weight related health problem is a good indicator that you would benefit from weight loss surgery
