At NorthShore we specialize in gastric bypass Roux-en-Y, considered the gold standard of weight loss surgery. Our bariatric surgeons perform the gastric bypass procedure as a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery.
Other procedures we specialize in are laparoscopic adjustable gastric band surgery (lap band), an adjustable and reversible minimally invasive surgery, sleeve gastrectomy which does not require that a foreign object be implated and gastric balloon, a new FDA-approved minimally invasive endoscopic procedure.
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.
