Lap Band Surgery Manhattan, New York City
Are you considering LAP-BAND as an option for weight loss surgery? LAP-BAND is a very common practice for weight loss surgery in Europe and Australia. At the Center for Obesity Surgery at Columbia Medical Center in Manhattan, New York City, the facility offers LAP-BAND and other weight loss surgery procedures.LAP-BAND is an approach to weight loss that is one of the least invasive procedures available, because neither the stomach nor the intestine is cut. The procedure is usually performed laparoscopically. The band is removable and adjustable; it does not alter your anatomy and it's a choice for patients who desire minimally invasive surgery.
LAP-BAND is FDA cleared, requires a shorter hospital stay and it doesn't affect the absorption of nutrients. The LAP-BAND works in limiting the amount of food you consume, it reduces your appetite and it slows down digestion. The LAP-BAND procedure is successful in part to the amount of commitment to the weight loss program the patient gives. The patient should dedicate themselves to a new lifestyle and eating habits. Success also comes with the support and personal dedication of a group such as the one at the Center for Obesity Surgery at Columbia Medical Center.
