Dr Gordon Padovan Emerge Surgical

Emerge Surgical, formerly known as Perth Bariatric Centre was founded by Dr Gordon Padovan following his return to Australia in 2005. His goal was to build a weight loss surgery practice that would provide a premium level of care to patients who are contemplating having Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass, Lap Sleeve or Lap Band surgery. Consulting Regularly in Mandurah and Perth (our main rooms) as well as Albany and Port Hedland, Dr Padovan strives to provide quality care and service. Emerge Surgical has been set up as a multi-disciplinary bariatric weight loss centre dedicated to achieving the best possible results. We have grown such that we now operate on hundreds of patients each year, and manage the long-term care of thousands of men and women who have undergone Bariatric Surgery procedures. Dr Padovan also looks after post surgery issues (excess skin removal procedures including tummy tuck and arm lifts), and performs a large amount of revisional surgery (removal of band, band to sleeve, etc.) and of recent, offers the SIPS procedure.

Having Weight loss surgery is just the first step on your road to recovery. Evidence shows that a weight loss surgery with a strong multidisciplinary approach will have significantly better results than a non-multidisciplinary approach. It is therefore recommended by leading bariatric surgeons around the globe.

Dr Gordon Padovan

Dr Padovan is a bariatric (Obesity) surgeon and weight loss surgeon with a vast experience in Gastric Bands, Sleeve Gastrectomy and Laparoscopic Gastric Bypass. After completing his surgical training in Perth and obtaining FRACS in 1999, Dr Padovan spent a further five years subspecialty training in the USA. This included working at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, the leading Minimally Invasive Surgery Centre in the United States. This Center included a multidisciplinary team of dietitians, psychologists, pulmonary specialists, endocrinologists and plastic surgeons. Dr Padovan returned to Australia in 2005 and started his practice, Emerge Surgical. A key part of his plan was to reproduce the multidisciplinary team he had worked with in the US. Over the years since Emerge Surgical’s inception, Dr Padovan has been able to surround himself with members of staff skilled in the management of people with weight-related needs.
