Dr Candice Silverman specialises in three surgical approaches, which are:
Keyhole surgical techniques involve accessing internal tissue via a series of smaller incisions rather than the conventional approach with one larger incision. This type of surgery is also referred to as 'minimally invasive' surgery.
Robotic Weight Loss Surgery
Dr Silverman was the very first surgeon in Queensland to use robotic surgical techniques to operate on patients undergoing weight loss (bariatric) surgery. She continues to specialise in this field.
Weight Loss Surgery
For the vast majority of people who are overweight or obese, a sensible exercise regime coupled with a new approach to eating is the most straightforward and effective mechanism for losing weight. However, this approach does not work for everyone, and many people, whether overweight or obese, struggle to lose the extra weight. Due to the medical risks of continuing to be overweight, many people opt to undergo Weight Loss (Bariatric) Surgery.
Dr Silverman undertakes a range of surgical procedures for clients, using laparoscopic, robotic and conventional surgical approaches.
