Mr Jon Shenfine & Dr Lachlan Dandie
We are Obesity & Weight Loss Surgery Adelaide - OWLSA - Jon Shenfine and Lachlan Dandie.
Jon & Lachy are two mates who happen to be dedicated and nationally recognised, specialist upper gastrointestinal (Upper GI) surgeons, despite very different backgrounds - Lachy being born and bred in Adelaide and Jon comes from the North of England. They deal with the whole spectrum of stomach and oesophageal surgery. Lachy works at Lyell Mac and Jon at Flinders and both care deeply about their patients. They are cancer surgeons and general surgeons but also have an interest in patients with weight problems.
They offer the full range of Upper GI surgery and the latest weight-loss surgical solutions (Bariatric surgery) delivered safely and effectively in state-of-the-art hospitals.
At the front desk, they have Kahlia (it's pronounced KAYlia). Kahlia runs the practice, when she isn't supporting you.
