The Uncertainty of COVID-19 in 2022 and Weight Loss Surgery

Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 cases, please be aware that there is a high risk for theatre closure in private hospitals.

The duration of these changes may be several months.

Update on Surrounding States

Last Updated: January 11, 2022

According to several recent Australian sources, COVID-19 hospitalisations in NSW have risen by 156, bringing the total number of patients admitted for treatment to over 2,000. There have also been a reported 170 (and counting) patients in Intensive Care Units.

On Friday, Premier of NSW, Dominic Perrottet, announced a suspension of non-urgent elective surgery until February, amid forecasts people with COVID could be taking up 6,000 beds in the state’s hospitals by the end of the month.

Latest WA COVID Update

Last Updated: January 11, 2022

In late 2021, the WA government announced they were opening the border on February the 5th. Upon this reopening of the borders, the WA government planned for 300 daily COVID cases when borders open. However, many argue that with Omicron, the cases are more likely to escalate to over 3,000 in just a short amount of time.

The lack of restrictions in place means there’s no telling what may happen for hospitals and surgeries including weight loss surgery.

One thing is certain though: It won’t be long before these surgeries become limited, and hospital beds and theatres can not welcome weight loss patients, as the other state’s restrictions and estimates have shown.
