Young Persons Weight Management Program - commencing July 2022!

Medsana has developed a structured children’s weight management program based on the NSW government’s 8 Healthy Habits and World Obesity Federation Modules.

After the initial medical assessment(s) we will work with the young person and their family through the 8 Healthy Habits.  The first consult is bulk-billed.

Our approach will be based on the best available evidence at the time. Our team will try to achieve life-long lifestyle improvements for our young people.  When appropriate, our approach may also include medication and dietary prescriptions.  This may occur after the appropriate consultations with paediatricians and specialists.  There will be no quick fixes.  We are here to support the life-long management of obesity so that our young people achieve good health outcomes and wellness in the long-term.

See the Young Persons Patient Journey for further details:
