Vancouver weight loss surgeons offer various types of weight loss surgery in Vancouver, BC.
The most common form of weight loss surgery performed by Vancouver weight loss surgeons is restrictive surgery, which includes Lap-Band and other types of gastric banding. These procedures involve the placement of a band around a portion of the stomach in order to restrict the amount of food the stomach can hold.
Another form Vancouver weight loss surgeons perform is gastric bypass, during which an entire section of the stomach is "bypassed" in order to limit excess food intake.
Weight loss surgery is typically only performed on individuals suffering from obesity, one of the most challenging health issues facing Canada and North America as a whole.
Vancouver, British Columbia, is an excellent place to enjoy your improved vision following weight loss surgery. The city and its natural surroundings provide breathtaking postcard views in every direction. With verdant parks, historic buildings and a host of attractions, Vancouver is truly a must-see.
Founded in the early 1800s around its wealth of natural resources, Vancouver's future growth was assured when gold was discovered along the Fraser River in 1858. Hordes of prospectors from California quickly arrived, many of whom would later find work in the nascent logging industry. Soon thereafter Vancouver established itself as Canada's gateway to the Pacific Rim. Today the city is home to one of North America's biggest ports, two major universities and a diverse population of more than 600,000 people.
Some of Vancouver's more popular attractions include its beautiful neighbourhoods, its unique Museum of Anthropology and its many well-known theatres, including the Orpheum, Vancouver Playhouse and Queen Elizabeth theatres, which together comprise the renowned Vancouver Civic Theatres.
