The Weight Loss Surgery Center is a team of highly motivated and experienced surgeons, nurses and support staff who care for Lap-Band, gastric sleeve and gastric bypass surgery patients. This includes an efficient and friendly preoperative evaluation and screening process, long with a comprehensive long-term follow-up.
The Lap-Band procedure has very few of the potential risks and complications associated with other more invasive bariatric procedures.
The National Institute of Health supports the use of bariatric surgery in the severely obese, citing studies that show the procedures often reduce or eliminate many obesity-related conditions. Some of these conditions include hypertension, sleep apnea, diabetes, arthritis, vascular disease and some forms of cancer.
It’s important to emphasize that weight loss surgery is in no way to be considered cosmetic surgery. Obesity is a chronic, frequently progressing, life-threatening disease. This surgery can improve the lives of those suffering from morbid obesity and the multiple medical illnesses associated with being overweight.
