What Weight Loss Procedures Are Offered in Toronto?
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
The Gastric Sleeve allows you to lose weight by helping to control portion size. Not only will you eat less but you will also feel full sooner. The food you eat passes through the digestive tract in the usual manner, allowing it to be fully absorbed in the body. Digestion and absorption of food and nutrients is not changed.

Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery
The Mini Gastric Bypass procedure was developed in 1997 with the goal of duplicating the excellent weight loss results of traditional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery while simplifying the procedure, shortening operating times and reducing complications. As tracking research data has accumulated, the Mini Gastric Bypass procedure has gained popularity as the modern alternative to traditional Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery –– excellent results, a simpler, more streamlined procedure and reduced overall complication rates.
The Lap-Band / gastric band works by allowing you to feel satisfied with smaller portions of food. The Lap-Band is placed around the upper part of the stomach. This creates a small pouch that fills with each bite of solid food that is eaten. Signals are sent to the brain, which responds by thinking the entire stomach is full. Food moves into the lower, larger part of the stomach at a controlled rate and is digested and absorbed unchanged from the way it was prior to the procedure. Even though you’re eating less, you will feel satisfied and no longer hungry.
