AMBI provides an internationally trained and compassionate team within a state-of-the-art hospital facility at a fraction of the US or Canadian procedure rate.
Living. Life. AMBI
Weight loss for living
At AMBI we know support from fellow patients is important, that’s why we pair you with a patient support partner. Our patients are available to speak to you both pre and post operatively about their personal experience with AMBI. We also have patient care liaisons available to speak with when you need us.
We offer several online support resources that include:
- Local support networks
- Post operative support materials
- Group support meetings with patients
- Contact with ambi surgeons and support team
How do I have a consultation?
No charge telephone consultations can be arranged with both our patient care coordinator and one of our surgeons. We understand your need to speak directly with the people providing your care. You will be contacted to discuss your past and current health and weight loss goals. Our team is happy to answer all your questions and discuss weight loss surgery options that best meet your needs. Our surgeons will discuss any potential risks, benefits and complications during your telephone consultation.
In advance of your consultation, we require that you complete our patient questionnaire for our staff to review prior to your consultation. click here to fill out our patient questionnaire.

Travelling alone for your procedure?
Please let us know if you are travelling unaccompanied to AMBI. We will make arrangements for a caregiver to remain with you for the first 24 hours after surgery.
Adjustable Gastric Band Aftercare
We are committed to providing you the care you need. If you have chosen to have an adjustable gastric band, you will be required to follow up with a physician and/or nurse post surgery to ensure your band is properly adjusted. Any patients choosing to return to AMBI for fills can do so free of cost. We have extensive lists of fill providers in both the US and Canada. We can also provide your physician fill instructions should they wish to perform this service for you.
