At NorthShore we specialize in gastric bypass Roux-en-Y, considered the gold standard of weight loss surgery options and laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgeries and sleeve gastrectomy. The gastric bypass Roux-en-Y can be performed as an open procedure (laparotomy) or as a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure. Our surgeons perform the gastric bypass procedure as a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.
With a highly trained team of surgeons, nurses, nutritionists, exercise therapists and psychologists, NorthShore is able to provide patients with safe and effective weight-loss surgery options, comprehensive pre- and post-operative education and ongoing aftercare.
Gastric bypass surgery is performed at Evanston, Glenbrook, and Highland Park Hospital. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding is performed at Evanston and Glenbrook Hospital.
