Dr Gounder is a specialist weight loss surgeon and the head surgeon at Perth Weight Loss and Surgery. Bariatric surgeon Dr Siva Gounder

He is particularly passionate about supporting people to find a new lease on life through weight loss and works closely with the multidisciplinary Perth Weight Loss team to ensure patients receive ongoing education and support.

“Bariatric surgery not only treats obesity but can also reduce the risk of other weight-related illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and even cancer,” he said.

“However, the journey is not just about weight loss – more importantly, it’s about sustainable lifestyle changes.”

“For this reason, follow up care is particularly important and I wanted to make this as easy as possible for my patients.”

“The Carine Specialist Centre offers a convenient location for patients who live in the area to access pre and post-operative care closer to home.”

The centre has over 20 specialists available for patient consultations, all of whom provide hospital care at St John of God Mt Lawley or Subiaco Hospitals.

Patients can ask their general practitioner (GP) for a referral to see one of the centre’s experienced specialists
