Dr Layani started his formal training in laparoscopic surgery in France (1994). Since being admitted to the Royal Australian College of Surgeons in 1998, he has been honored by numerous national and international institutions for his role as an educator and facilitator for new developments in bariatric surgery. He is currently a major contributor to research being done in the US regarding new surgical treatments for obesity.
A number of highly respected surgeons around Australia and the world have completed varying components of their formal training under his guidance and many have gone on to establish themselves in private practice. He is currently the head surgeon for WeightLoss Solutions Australia (WLSA) at John Flynn Private Hospital in Queensland, Australia and has been in private practice for over 12 years.
His WLSA multidisciplinary model for onsite assessment, care, and support is the hallmark standard for pre and post-operative clinical management of a bariatric patient. His centre of excellence approach to the treatment of obesity and co-morbid complications is a major factor in his extremely low complication rates and positive patient outcomes.
