Modern weight loss procedures
Since 2005, SmartShape surgeons have performed over 6,000 weight loss procedures using advanced surgical techniques and state-of-the-art surgical equipment to ensure you have the safest and most effective procedure.
SmartShape™ is the first Canadian facility accredited as a Centre of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (CoEMBS) by the Surgical Review Corporation. The accreditation is awarded to a facility and its surgeons that are distinguished providers for delivering high-quality preoperative and long-term follow-up care.
All of our Bariatric procedures are performed laparoscopically, a surgical technique that involves only small incisions. Laparoscopic surgery is a low-risk, minimally invasive technique with many benefits including smaller surgical scars, less pain, shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and reduced risks of infection.

Bariatric Surgery: Procedures
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
The Gastric Sleeve procedure decreases the size of your stomach, limiting the amount of food you can eat and helps you to feel full, faster.
Mini Gastric Bypass Surgery
The Mini Gastric Bypass procedure works by reducing the size of your stomach, restricting the amount you can eat and also by reducing the absorption of the food that you do eat, by bypassing a portion of your intestines.
The Lap-Band procedure allows you to feel satisfied with smaller portions. A band is placed around the stomach creating a small pouch that fills with each bite, making the brain think the stomach is full.
