Why Choose Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Gastric sleeve is the most popular weight-loss operation worldwide. You get excellent long-term weight-loss results, it takes less than an hour to complete and recovery times are fast.

  1. You feel full and satisfied after eating less
  2. Appetite and cravings are substantially diminished due to fewer hunger-causing hormones
  3. Dramatic improvement or complete resolution of most weight-related medical conditions

Once surgery is completed, we never let you out of our sight! Through the use of virtual appointments, virtual support groups and virtual weight monitoring we ensure that you stay on track throughout the program and beyond regardless of where you live.

"Dr. Gmora is an amazing Surgeon with incredible bedside manners. He completed my surgery on April 26, 2017. From the moment I woke up, I felt healthier and more energetic then I have felt in the past 10 years. He is very approachable and his before and after care instructions are clear, concise and easy to follow! Would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone!"

"I could not be more happy with the results of my gastric sleeve surgery. He was a wonderful doctor. Genuine, and caring. Down 84lbs and still the scale is moving :)"

"Before I had this surgery I didn’t leave my home for years other than to work a night shift job I had taken as to not have to meet new people or hear people talk about my weight. I started at almost 300 pounds and today I am 140 and holding strong now for about a year. I credit him and myself for my new life. I was given a second chance and would never ever look back. Thank you Dr. Gmora for performing these life altering surgeries to us who were unable to get here on our own."

"The Best Dr/Surgeon I have ever had or met. His wonderful, kind demeanor during the process was so awesome. He is a kind man and that comes through in his personality when dealing with patients. If you are lucky enough to go through this process pick him to lead you through this new journey."

"Dr. Gmora is by far the greatest MD I have ever dealt with. His bedside manner and comforting reassurance made going in for such a complicated surgery, very relaxing. His degree of professionalism combined with his down to earth attitude made me feel totally at ease. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me get another shot at life. Tony D."

"Dr. Gmora is amazing I cannot even imagine having another doctor!!"

How quickly can I have the surgery performed?

It typically takes 2-4 weeks from the time of your first consultation. It is critical that we properly prepare you prior to surgery. This means having a thorough medical assessment to make sure you are medically fit for surgery. It also means teaching you what to expect after surgery and how to manage your new stomach once surgery is completed so that your weight loss results are extraordinary and permanent.

Is the procedure covered by my provincial health insurance?

The Sleeve Clinic is a private, boutique bariatric surgery clinic specializing exclusively in the gastric sleeve surgical procedure.  It is not covered by provincial health care plans, but you may be able to get some coverage from private health insurance. Check with your individual or employer insurance provider for specifics.

Is Financing available?

We offer several financing options for our patients who desire a deferred payment plan. Medicard provides plans that are specifically designed to provide our patients affordable monthly payments and low interest rates.

How does your Aftercare program work if I live outside of Ontario? Am I still able to get my surgery at The Sleeve Clinic?

Our patients come from all over the Canada and even from other countries! By utilizing a number of cutting edge technologies and tools, we are able to support you through your surgical recovery and your 5 year Aftercare Program using exclusively virtual care! Of course, you will have to come to our clinic for the actual surgery (technology hasn’t gotten THAT good), but we take the absolute best care of you while you are here. Once you head back home, we stay with you every step of the way, and you have access to our entire team whenever you need them.
