Last week I visited ABC 15 with Lapband patient and local celebrity, Jineane Ford. We discussed the Lap-band and how it works. Over 5 years since her weight loss surgery, and Jineane has successfully kept her weight off, and improved her overall health. Her total weight loss was more than 50 pounds. In addition to lap-band surgery, our patients have experienced weight loss success with gastric sleeve and gastric plication surgeries.
If you are considering weight loss surgery, you should contact our office and determine if you are eligible, and what surgery would be the most beneficial for you. Every surgery includes a level of risk, and you can consult your own physician or health care provider about possible risks. Dr. Simpson also provides information on lap band surgery risks on his website: YourDoctorsOrders.com
