A/Prof Michael Talbot has an active interest in the more complex areas of upper gastrointestinal surgery, weight loss surgery and endoscopy, and has performed almost 2000 primary and re-do weight loss procedures including large numbers of laparoscopic gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomies.

A/Prof Talbot performed Australasia’s first robotic bariatric and oesophageal surgical procedures. He is one of very few clinicians in Australia experienced in newly-introduced endoscopic therapies to manage early tumours and oesophageal functional disorders.

He offers the full range of endoscopic and surgical treatments for neoplasia in the oesophagus and stomach and runs NSW’s longest established high resolution oesophageal diagnostic lab.

Michael finds the time spent with his patients to be the most enjoyable part of his job. ‘Talking to patients, and trying to find the least intrusive surgical treatment for the problems they are trying to beat is a constantly challenging and rewarding job’,

After Graduating from the University of Otago, he completed his Internship in Wellington, NZ before commencing residency and surgical training at St Vincent’s. In 2001 he graduated from Advanced Surgical Training in Sydney and went on to complete further subspecialty training at in Glasgow, UK.
