Our Office Hours:
If you're thinking of LAP-BAND laparoscopic obesity surgery to improve your health, Dr. Elliot Goodman at Beth Israel Medical Center in NY has the answers you are looking for. You may have tried other types of treatments if you have excess weight, but there is the LAP-BAND which does give great results; it is worth a try.
The LAP-BAND is an adjustable band that is fit around the top of the stomach and is inflated, accomplishing two things: the effective reduction in the size of the stomach and the rate at which food is absorbed diminishes. This means that the feeling of being full after we have had a meal, lasts longer and fewer calories are taken in. Because the LAP-BAND is not a physical change in the stomach itself and incisions are very small, recovery times are drastically reduced. And if you should ever feel that you no longer need the LAP-BAND, it can be easily removed with little complication to the patient.
At Beth Israel Medical Center, Dr. Goodman gives each individual he sees the dignity and respect they deserve. He recognizes that each person is different and requires a unique approach to surgery, recovery, and life after a Bariatric procedure. By educating people both before and after surgery, he arms them with knowledge that helps them make informed decisions and keeps them working for a healthier lifestyle.
A LAP-BAND can help change your life. Call Dr. Goodman at Beth Israel Medical Center in NY to start on a healthier path.
