In 2003, Dr Brancatisano founded the Institute of Weight Control and developed the Circle of Care program. This program arose in response to listening to patients’ needs and experiences and realising that they are better able to achieve their goals of weight control and a healthier lifestyle when supported by a team of health professionals, including physicians, dietitians, psychologists and physiotherapists. In 2023 Dr Brancatisano celebrates 20 years of helping patients change their lives through weight loss surgery and his Circle of Care Program.
Committed to professional development and education, Dr Brancatisano is a member of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity (IFSO) and the Australia & New Zealand Metabolic & Obesity Surgery Society (ANZMOSS); and is a founding member of the Asia Pacific Bariatric Surgery Society (APBSS). He continues to perform all laparoscopic upper gastrointestinal surgery including gallstone, hernia and anti-reflux procedures, as well as endoscopies.
Dr Brancatisano is the director of the Institute of Weight Control; and has appointments at private hospitals in North Western Sydney including Lakeview Private Hospital, Westmead Private Hospital and Norwest Private Hospital.
