Ready to transform your life?
Excessive weight gain increases the risk of serious medical conditions, which include diabetes, heart disease, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and cancer. Obese individuals may have problems with self esteem, depression, and are often subject to discrimination in a “weight-ist” society. It has been shown that weight loss surgery or a surgical weight loss program is an excellent solution for individuals who have NOT had long term success with diets.
Laparoscopic band weight loss surgery or Lapband® at Credit Valley Clinic offers a more permanent and safe solution to your health and weight problem. Our weight loss surgery clinic serves clients across the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), including Mississauga, Oakville, Toronto, Cambridge, Kitchener and all over Ontario, Canada.
A safe and reliable option for weight loss.
The adjustable gastric banding surgery procedure is recognized as one of the safest surgical options for treating obesity. We take the time to analyze your medical history to minimize all risks. Our certified laparoscopic gastric banding surgeons, Dr. Grant Moffat, Dr. Vitaly Bard and Dr. Neil Woolfson have extensive experience with lap bands for weight loss. Their clinical expertise, high standards in health care and unwavering commitment to improving patients’ health have transformed many lives for the better.
Laparoscopic gastric banding is a minimally invasive (usually outpatient) surgical procedure. A silicone adjustable band (also known in the literature as “Lap-Band®” ,“REALIZE® Band”, Swedish Adjustable Gastric Band (SAGB®), Midband®, etc.) is placed around the stomach. As a result, you can expect long term control of appetite and satisfaction with small portion sizes, as well as weight loss at a safe and steady pace and without the feeling of ravenous hunger!
More than weight loss surgery.
Going beyond laparoscopic weight loss surgery, we stress proper nutrition and an active lifestyle to enhance your quality of life. Our experienced team of surgeons, dieticians, psychologists, exercise physiologists and nurses empowers you with the knowledge, motivation and support needed to make this important and permanent health change.
Credit Valley Clinic offers a multidisciplinary program to address all of your weight loss needs. Our 5 year post-surgery care and additional weight loss surgery services including:
help you meet your goals and maintain a healthy weight. Life changing 14-week psychological courses addressing the causes of major obesity (binge eating, emotional eating) are also offered to help you understand and eliminate triggers for more lasting results.
Our experienced surgeons use state-of-the-art minimally invasive instruments to perform laparoscopic gastric band surgery at Credit Valley Hospital, Mississauga or at the Institute of Cosmetic and Laser Surgery (a Private Accredited Surgical Facility) in Oakville . We do not offer gastric bypass or sleeve surgical weight loss procedures.
Lap band weight loss surgery is currently not an OHIP insured service. Easy financing is available through Medicard Services to help with the investment in better health and quality of life.
