We use the LAP-BAND® System
The most popular and safest device available, the LAP-BAND® System is approved by Health Canada. Importantly, it is one of only two gastric band devices approved by and meeting the stringent requirements of the FDA. It is the most widely implanted gastric band device, having helped over 800,000 people worldwide, with a proven safety and efficacy record.
Procedures are performed in accredited and fully licensed Independent Health Facilities
Our surgeons are leaders in setting quality standards. The Canadian Association of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (CAASF) regularly inspects all SmartShape Weight Loss Centre facilities. This maintains our accreditation, which meets or exceeds the quality standards of all Provincial Colleges and Regulatory bodies. Our surgeons are involved in the establishment of the quality standards for weight loss surgery that are required for all independent health clinics.
We are internationally respected for our excellence in research and publications
SWLC has just completed participation in the 5-year multi-centre HERO study on LAP-BAND®.
We maintain our status as the leading Canadian clinic offering LAP-BAND®, Gastric Sleeve, Mini Gastric Bypass, and Revision procedures by continually participating in global studies, publishing our results in respected medical journals, and speaking at Canadian and International conferences. This not only sets us apart from other clinics, but it further demonstrates our dedication to finding successful weight loss solutions for our clients. In 2010, SWLC became the first Canadian clinic to have LAP-BAND® research published in the world-renowned bariatric journal Obesity Surgery.
