Dr Aldenb Lorenzo

Dr Aldenb Lorenzo is an upper gastrointestinal, bariatric/weight loss, and general surgeon. He finished his general surgical training in the Sydney West Area Health Service hospitals with Westmead Hospital as the training institution.

He was awarded his fellowship in general surgery (Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, FRACS) in 2016. He then became the Clinical Superintendent in Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospitals for two years. After this he went through a post-fellowship year of rigorous training in upper gastrointestinal surgery in St. Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney with focus on complex hiatus hernia repair in lung transplant patients.

Dr Lorenzo furthered his training with the prestigious Australia and New Zealand Gastric and Oesophageal Surgery Association (ANZGOSA). He spent a year of his ANZGOSA training in the Bariatric Unit in Auckland City Hospital, New Zealand, refining his skills in bariatric/obesity surgery to add to his general surgical experience.

He invested the next two years in Bankstown-Lidcombe and Liverpool hospitals for upper gastrointestinal oncology training (oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver cancer). He is a surgical educator with a passion for research and teaching the next generation of doctors and surgical trainees.

Dr Lorenzo is known for his comprehensive and compassionate approach and his passion for inviting his patients to be fully engaged in the decision-making process and understanding their condition. He has regular operating theatre lists at Norwest Private Hospital and Lakeview Private Hospital, as well as public operating lists at Bankstown/Lidcombe Public Hospitals and other locations.
