Patients with morbid obesity can be referred to COMS within Central Adelaide Local Health Network based at TQEH for obesity management and bariatric surgery. The service incorporates a multi-disciplinary team based approach and aims to increase patient’s capacity for self management.

A commitment to making lifestyle change with weight stability, participation in exercise programs and smoking cessation are required prior to being considered for surgery. COMS offer medical and surgical approaches such as Sleeve Gastrectomy and Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass. To ensure your patient is eligible and to download a referral form or the COMS information brochure go to our SA Health Fact Sheet at:
