  • "I had the Gastric Sleeve surgery under Dr Andrew Huo and I cannot talk more highly of my experience. He is very professional, and his expertise in this area really shows. He also shows a great deal of compassion. I now don’t have to take medications for diabetes, blood pressure or cholesterol, and I don’t use a CPAP machine any more, and I have no pain in my hips or knees… My quality of life has improved so much and I look forward to do things that I thought I would never have to do again. A huge thank you to Andrew for where I am now."

    - Linda C

  • "I had a gastric sleeve procedure done in June by Mr Huo. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. From the first day of meeting Mr Huo, I felt very comfortable with him as he explained in detail from day 1 for what I had to do in order to achieve my goal. Mr Huo was very professional and kind in describing the ups and downs and the positives and negatives of this surgery. I went into the surgery at the weight of 147 kg and by 3 months after surgery, I weigh 105 kg and I feel like I have been re-born again with a new look to life. I now have no high blood pressure, no cholesterol, no diabetes, and best of all… no sleep apnoea. So a big THANK YOU to you, DR HUO, for changing my life."
