Mr David Yong (Director)

General, Upper Gastrointestinal and Bariatric Surgeon

Mr David Yong has been performing bariatric procedures for both public and private patients at Joondalup Health Campus since 2011. Prior to this, he completed three years of post-fellowship in Upper Gastro-intestinal (GI) and bariatric surgery at leading tertiary institutions in both Australia and New Zealand.
