Alberta Lap Band Surgery

by Susan


I want to have lap band surgery, but at a public clinic . I understand in Alberta the surgery is covered by Health Care. I don’t know how I am really supposed to go about finding a surgeon or going through the whole process. I guess I start by getting the name of a doctor and then getting a referral from my doctor.

Have your doctor refer you to the Weight Wise program who will do provincially funded surgeries - good program with 250 surgeries per year in Edmonton amd Lethbridge and aobut 75 in Calgary.

Or, check this page for other Alberta weight loss surgeons.

Hi my daughter and her boyfriend would like the lap band surgery. How much for 2 people do you give a break for 2 people from the same family doing it?

Also can we get it done in Edmonton?
