Description: In the past, obesity has been seen as a weakness or an individual’s failure. Diet and exercise were the only prescribed treatments, and weight loss surgery was viewed as dangerous and extreme. Now, obesity is recognized as a disease and the cause of many serious health conditions including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, and sleep disorders. Weight loss surgery is now accepted as a proven method to treat this disease. Seriously overweight patients who have never been able to keep pounds off with diet pills, special meals, or other weight loss programs now have a safe, effective, and minimally invasive surgical option that significantly reduces food intake. This surgery is called laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. We welcome you to attend one of our free gastric banding seminars. The Bariatric Team, along with former weight loss surgery patients, will be on-hand to explain the program and answer all your questions.
