Ashford Surgery &Bariatric Clinic Adelaide

  • In Adelaide at Ashford Hospital the Ashford Surgery and Bariatric Clinic is one of oldest and most experienced bariatric clinics in Australia.
  • Most of our patients will meet both of our Bariatric GPs, who are among the most experienced bariatric GPs in Adelaide.




  • Gastric Banding 
  • Sleeve Gastrectomy
  • Gastric Bypass

Payment options

  • Our policy therefore is to have a single payment of $2,800, which is called a “facility fee”.
    This facility fee provides access to the Obesity Clinic for all follow-up appointments which means patients are bulk billed following their surgery. This fee is paid to the clinic at least a week before surgey.
    This also underpins our belief that the follow up is an important part of this procedure and that we want to and insist on seeing patients regularly post operatively. Having a clinic which doesn’t then charge for post op visits hopefully ensures that patients wont stay away for financial reasons.

Dr Benjamin Teague

Dr Teague completed his Fellowship in General Surgery in Adelaide with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2008. From 2008 to 2010 he worked as the International Fellow at the Centre for Minimal Access Surgery, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada. In Canada he completed two years of additional specialty training in advanced laparoscopic surgical procedures including obesity surgery, fundoplication, splenectomy, colectomy, ventral and inguinal hernia repair. In 2010 Dr Teague returned to Adelaide, joining the Ashford Surgical and Bariatric Clinic to offer private weight loss surgery. Dr Teague has training in laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery and laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and is able to offer patients an informed choice in surgical weight loss procedures including the laparoscopic band as well as the sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass procedures. Dr Teague also works in public practice at Modbury Public Hospital as a Visiting Specialist in General Surgery with an interest in advanced laparoscopic gastrointestinal surgery. The two Adelaide GP’s are Dr Steve Sabine and Dr Mark Yaeger. Both of these doctors have quite extensive experience now with bariatric patients and subscribe to the philosophy that patients with a weight related problem usually have numerous reasons for their weight gain, which shouldn’t be prejudged to be just lack of discipline We all believe the reasons for weight gain are complex and are often an interplay of genes and environment.Each patient will be considered individually and any correctable problems identified and dealt with prior to surgery.While patients primarily come to us for a surgical solution to their weight problem,we believe that the holistic approach is important
