Experience and Expertise

Dr. Kuri has chosen to specialize in the lap band procedure for the last 18 years. He has personally performed nearly 6,000 Lap-Band® procedures. You should also check out our Patient Success Stories, including those of your own Patient Facilitator to learn about their individual experiences and successes.


Our price is usually a fraction of our US competitors. Even those that have the option of using their insurance sometimes find that their out-of-pocket expenses exceed or match what they would pay Dr. Kuri for his all-inclusive package. Also, any medical related expense, including travel expenses, are tax deductible.
One of the things Dr. Kuri’s patients appreciate most is the availability of Dr. Kuri and his staff. Our office is open Monday-Saturday 8:30am-8:00pm. During off hours, our phone rings directly to Dr. Kuri. Patients are frequently shocked when they get their surgeon in the middle of the night. You can’t get that sort of attention in the States! You will also be assigned a Patient Facilitator and Patient Education Coordinator who will answer any questions you may have related to the surgery as well as provide you with the resources and support you will need through your weight loss journey with the Lap Band. * Results may vary.
Visit our Online Patient Forum to learn about our online community of close-knit Bandsters. This is an invaluable resource to gain support, access to patient education documents, references, resources, and insight from other Kuri patients about their own true life lap band success stories. * Results may vary.
Many patients like to check in with Dr. Kuri now and again for a fill and check up. Dr. Kuri’s fills are FREE FOR LIFE. He loves seeing his patients post surgery! However, Dr. Kuri has an extensive list of fill providers in various US cities and Canadian provinces. Included is information on how to contact the provider, how much the fill appointments cost (vary by provider), and any other additional information available. Also, you will have the continued benefit of your Patient Facilitator, Patient Educator and support staff to guide you through your weight loss journey. Our goal is to provide you with superior care, personal support, and educational resources to help you achieve your weight loss goals.  * Results may vary.
We have traveling for surgery down to a science. No matter what route you choose, we provide cross-border transportation to make the process as safe and simple as possible. We recommend a two nights stay at the Palacio Azteca Hotel following surgery. If you choose to stay in a hotel, we provide transportation to and from the hotel and hospital as well. Bottom line: you are cared for from the moment you arrive.
