ABOUT DR MCLEOD

Dr Garth McLeod BSc, BHB, MBChB, FRACS is a General and Bariatric Surgeon based at Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast, with subspecialty training in obesity and metabolic surgery. He operates from Noosa Private Hospital at Noosaville and Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital in Birtinya.

Dr McLeod’s surgical exposure was broad from the outset. After he graduated from Auckland University School of Medicine in 1998, he spent over ten years working in Surgery and Emergency Medicine. Six years were in General Surgery and Urology, and five years in Emergency Departments. This exposure was predominantly rural hospitals in both New Zealand and Australia.

Dr McLeod began his advanced surgical training in 2010 and completed it four years later. In 2014 he was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in the specialty of General Surgery.

Prior to his appointment to Noosa Private Hospital, Dr McLeod completed a 12-month Fellowship in Bariatrics with Dr George Hopkins in Brisbane. The fellowship involved a high volume caseload, with more than 500 bariatric procedures annually. The Practice was based at both Holy Spirit Northside, and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospitals. The caseload was incredibly varied, including primary, revisional and complex cases – with patients from intra-state and interstate.

Bariatric Surgery refers to surgery for the treatment of obesity and metabolic disease which is almost exclusively performed laparoscopically.

Dr McLeod is one of the few Bariatric Surgeons living and working on the Sunshine Coast. This enables him to offer a better surgical and after-care service for Sunshine Coast patients.
