SmartShape™ uses only the world’s most widely used gastric band device, the LAP-BAND® System from Apollo Endosurgery. With over 25 years of clinical research proving safety and efficacy, the LAP-BAND® is the #1 choice of surgeons and represents over 90% of all bands used worldwide.
The LAP-BAND® device costs more than lesser known ‘bargain’ bands offered elsewhere but there are good reasons it remains the world’s top choice. Would you want anything less?
The LAP-BAND® is approved by Health Canada and is the only gastric band device that also meets the stringent approval requirements of the FDA in the US.
For Gastric Sleeve and Mini Gastric Bypass procedures, SmartShape uses only the most advanced surgical stapling devices and surgical staples available.
For gastric balloon procedures, SmartShape™ uses only the widely recognized market leader – the Orbera Gastric Balloon. With a well-established safety profile based on over 220,000 placements, the Orbera Gastric Balloon is the #1 gastric balloon in the world.
Since 2005, our multi-disciplinary team of professionals have specialized in providing Canadians with high-quality care and ongoing support and have built an unsurpassed reputation for delivery of proven weight loss solutions: our renowned and comprehensive LAP-BAND®, Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Balloon and Revision Surgery programs.
SmartShape™ has gained an international reputation for excellence in research and publications.
In 2015 we achieved the coveted “Center of Excellence” accreditation from the SRC organization (Surgical Review Corporation), an internationally recognized health care leader committed to advancing the safety and efficiency of surgical care worldwide.

SmartShape™ is the only Canadian private clinic to hold this distinction.
SmartShape™ offers the longest and most comprehensive Aftercare program available in Canada.
But is Aftercare really all that important? Absolutely, it is –– both for your health and your weight loss success.
At SmartShape™ we feel so strongly about the importance of Aftercare that Five Years of Aftercare Support are included in the cost of every LAP-BAND®, Gastric Sleeve, and Revision Surgery procedure. (click to see what's included)
Some clinics skimp on Aftercare in order to offer what may appear to be a ‘bargain’ price, but it is a false saving. When the cost of essential Aftercare visits are factored in, the so-called ‘bargain’ brand ends up costing more than SmartShape™. Clinics that fail to provide full and comprehensive Aftercare support are cost cutting at your expense. And not giving you the support you need to be successful.
Without a strong Aftercare program your weight loss success will be hampered and your health could even be at risk. Read what the American Diabetes Association has said about the importance of Aftercare following Metabolic surgery:
