Bariatric surgery is performed if other forms of fat reduction methods like exercise or diet control do not produce the desired results.

Laproscopic Gastric Banding (Lap- Band)

Obesity is an epidemic affecting approximately 50% of Canadians. It is now the leading cause of preventable death in North America. Reports and advertisements of new diets and weight loss centres are everywhere. Despite the public awareness of this serious chronic medical illness, the rates of obesity continue to rise every year.

If you are one of those people, you know that being overweight is bad for your health and can shorten your life expectancy. Non-surgical weight loss clinics and diets have not proven effective at producing significant sustained weight loss for obese individuals.

Not everyone who has a weight problem requires or will benefit from weight loss (bariatric) surgery. One way to determine if you will benefit from bariatric surgery is to calculate your BMI. The ideal BMI is 20 to 25. If your BMI is 30 or greater you may be a candidate.

Through our partner facilities in Mexico and India we offer a safe and effective surgical procedure known as Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding. This minimally invasive procedure has been shown to be effective in hundreds of thousands of patients worldwide.
