  • About Us

    Weight Loss Surgery Options

    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.

    We perform minimally invasive gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy and Lap Band insertion at Evanston Hospital, Highland Park Hospital and Glenbrook Hospitals
