Why The Sleeve Clinic?
Dr. Gmora launched The Sleeve Clinic because he saw a dire need.
- Many patients that would benefit greatly from weight loss surgery don’t qualify for coverage under OHIP.
- Many people are reluctant to have a gastric bypass as it requires complex rerouting of the intestines
- Too many people suffer their entire lives from the hopelessness of being “fat”. Our mission is to get people off the endless rollercoaster and reset their lives and health once and for all.
- Everyone deserves the high level of surgeon expertise found at provincially-designated Bariatric Centres of Excellence.
