Simply the best! I also thank all the people below me leaving a review as this prompted me to see him. Why? Because I saw a lot of reviews with stories similar to mine. Band converted to Sleeve botched up severe reflux with nil weight loss and then bring blamed for it saying 'it's all in your head'. To cut a long story short all boo-bois fixed. Nil reflux and back to losing weight with SIPS Surgery. There is no doubt that he is a bloody brilliant surgeon but it's his persona that amazes me. Brilliant. Absolutely love him to bits. You will not go wrong.

Absolutely the best! I had a band removed and then sleeved by another surgeon. I did lose weight and suffered from intractable reflux. I was put on medication. I then started putting on weight. My surgeon when asked to help with my reflux said all I could do was put bricks under my pillow. After I read a similar story here I chose to go see Ravi. After a detailed history he immediately told me what the problem may be. After a 4 hour surgery, he brought down my unwrapped stomach and 4 cms of unsleeved stomach from my chest which was left behind and my hiatus closed with a mesh by my previous surgeon. 4 months later completely cured of reflux I had the SIPS surgery. I am now 30 kilos lighter and symptom free. This man is a genius and amazing personality too! Do not hesitate. He is the best!

I had a sleeve gastrectomy 4 weeks ago with Dr Rao and I could not recommend him highly enough. His staff are awesome and friendly. Dr Rao is second to none in his specialty. He is upfront and honest. He tells it how it is. He works with you towards your healthier future. Thank you so much Dr Rao! You go above and beyond for your patients!

I had a primary SIPS surgery with Dr.Rao 3 months back. Spotless recovery, lost 26 kilograms but the biggest achievement was losing all diabetic medications including insulin in the first week itself. He is very pleasant, amiable with excellent bedside manners. I put this review here as it was the reviews on Ratemds that made me choose him. You won't go wrong.

I am happy I chose Ravi after reading a lot of reviews on Google , Facebook forums and other sites. After meeting him I can rest assure you the reviews are spot on. I am a patient who had botched up surgery from another surgeon with severe reflux pain and suboptimal weight loss. Instead if telling me the other surgeon that the problem was in my head he immediately pointed out what the problem was. He did tests which confirmed his suspicions. I have 2 surgeries since. One to correct the pr8and the second SIPS. I have nil reflux and lost 22 kgs in 3 months. He is the most kind and genuine person I have met. He cares and jas god givem special skills. I hope thar he continues to remain the way he is because of which all his patients including me love him.

I had been overweight for many years. I tried everything but was losing the battle. I was afraid to use surgery as an option for various reasons until I met my colleague who suddenly lost weight and looked beautiful! She had so much praise for this Man Dr Ravi Rao. Now after mustering the courage to go to him and having had the SIPS Surgery, I can’t recommend Dr Ravi enough to anyone who is struggling with obesity. He has been fantastic and highly approachable throughout the whole process of getting SIPS done. Right from my first appointment he explained all my options in the most clear and open way possible. The results are speaking for themselves. I wish I had done this earlier.

Excellent doctor. Lovely person. Right from the first meeting absolutely amazing. Explained everything so well all my questions were answered. I came first the sleeve but since having haemochromatosis and regular venesections he offered me the SIPS. After surgery , very minimal pain, home next and back to feeling normal in a few days. Wondered if he actually did anything at all!. 3 months later have lost 24 kgs and no Venesections !! Love the man. Love his work! Dont even think about it , just choose him to be your doctor! You wont go wrong.

Absolutely fantastic man. Great Surgeon and a thorough gentleman. I had severe reflux from my initial surgery from a different surgeon who said to live with it as nothing could be done. I regained weight too.. Dr Rao after thorough investigations found a large unsleeved hiatal hernia. He reduced the paraoesophageal hernia in a 3 hour surgery first and then did the SIPS surgery 3 months later. The reflux went away day 1 of the first operation. Now 30 kgs done after SIPS. Suchi Rhea Jackie were all fantastic. Great aftercare. Truly the best in his field. Truly reflects his training in the US, way superior than most contemporaries. Thanks Dr Rao.

Dr Ravi Rao has given me the tools to reclaim my life. His open and honest manner, exceptional level of skill and knowledge and the outstanding, ongoing support from him and his team makes him the best bariatric specialist in Western Australia. He is that rare combination of straightforward no-nonsense encompassed by genuine empathy and care. It’s exactly what you need from a bariatric surgeon. I underwent Gastric Sleeve surgery with Dr Rao in November 2017. My Stats: 122kg - 62kg. BMI 39.8 - 20.4. Total loss of 60kgs. Dress Size (AUS) 20-22 down to 8-10. Type 2 Diabetes gone, Liver Function normal, Sleep Apnea gone. I absolutely recommend Dr Ravi Rao and his team at Perth Surgical & Bariatrics. Your health is the most important thing you have.
