Experience

Our bariatric surgeon, Dr. Simon Chow, MD, MSc, FRCSC, FACS is among the foremost leaders in private bariatric surgery in Canada in terms of years of experience and the number of cases performed to date. Dr. Chow has a proven safety record due to his diligence, meticulousness, care, and technique, also producing great results in weight loss outcomes. His patients continue to consistently recommend him.
We also have a very experienced team, including a bariatric dietitian who has been practicing in the field since 2015. Nutrition education and counseling are of utmost importance to successful long term outcomes.

Safety

Our access to a fully accredited private hospital, Centre Métropolitain de Chirurgie (CMC), which has been licensed by the Health Ministry since 1973, allows us to admit patients to the hospital after surgery for the careful observation required for safe surgery. In the private sector, we are in full control of our practice and can choose the best technology, the most effective medications and most current surgical instrumentation. We are not limited to one bariatric procedure; our surgeons are free to discuss with our patients the operation that best fits their risk profile and long-term weight loss goals.
Our surgeons perform the surgery (no trainees) and respond to all emergencies in the hospital. In addition, our team is made available for any questions and emergencies during and after business hours. We have operated on over 2000 patients at our private hospital since 2006 with an excellent record and long-term results. During a consultation, our surgeons will discuss with you your exact risk profile based on a large patient experience so you can make an informed decision about your care.

Patient-centered Continuity of Care

Our medical team, including our nurse, dietitian, and patient coordinator, have been with us for several years.
Our patients find it reassuring to know that they will always see the same professionals every time they’re in contact with us. The same nurse and same dietitian will follow-up on your care at every appointment, email, and phone call, ensuring that they know each and every one of their patients. Not only does this permit them to provide each patient with tailored individualized care but our close knit team works together, rather than in silos, to provide the best care. Our patients regularly express high satisfaction with the support they receive.

Availability (no wait list)

We provide evidence-based, state-of-the-art, surgical treatment options for severe life-threatening obesity for patients who wish to take control of their health and life! Patients can have their surgery within 4-6 weeks from the office consultation. This time is required for the proper preparation for safe bariatric surgery.

When comparing us to other clinics consider the following

01
Do they provide “turn-key” service and no additional or hidden fees for their services related to the complexity of the case, your BMI, or whether you’ve had previous abdominal surgeries?
02
Do they have trainees assisting with surgery?
03
Is the surgeon who performed your surgery the same one who will follow you from start to finish, even several months out?
04
Do they perform your surgery in an accredited hospital as opposed to an ambulatory or day surgery centre?
05
Do they admit and monitor you for 1-3 days after the surgery in an accredited hospital as opposed to sending you to a hotel room?
06
Do they provide follow-up with a registered dietitian who is highly experienced in bariatric surgery for 6 months after your surgery, and include this in their fees?
