Dr Govind Krishna is a Specialist Bariatric Surgeon who provides affordable consultative and surgical weight loss services to patients across South-Western Sydney.
He has over 20+ years of upper-gastrointestinal surgical experience, with 15+ years of that time dedicated to bariatric surgery. During his career, he has performed a considerable number of gastric sleeve and gastric bypass operations and has developed significant specialisation in these procedures.
Dr Krishna completed his surgical training across Australia and New Zealand, obtaining his FRACS (Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons) in General Surgery in 1999 and graduating as a Consultant General Surgeon. He then embarked on additional sub-specialised training, completing a 1-year vascular surgery training fellowship at Auckland Hospital, followed by a 1-year upper-gastrointestinal surgery training fellowship at St George Hospital, Sydney.
Upon completing these sub-specialised training fellowships, Dr Krishna undertook a Master of Surgery degree specialising in Upper-GI Surgery, all while working as a Consultant General Surgeon at the Middlemore & Whangarei Hospital, New Zealand before moving to Australia in 2010, where he has lived and worked ever since.
In addition to bariatric surgery, Dr Govind Krishna also has extensive experience in advanced Upper-GI laparoscopic surgery, including complex hiatal-hernia surgery to treat chronic acid reflux (GORD), general abdominal hernia surgery and gallbladder (cholecystectomy) surgery.
Dr Krishna has been performing gastrointestinal surgery for over two decades, during which time he has treated a wide-range of straight-forward and highly-complex clinical presentations.
