Our Office Hours:
The LAP BAND, much like gastric bypass, is a surgery that can aid in the loss of unwanted weight. It's great for people who have tried diet, exercise and other weight loss programs that have failed for them. At Beth Israel Medical Center in NYC, Dr. Elliot Goodman gives patients new hope for weight loss. Dr. Goodman was born in England and came to the US in 1990 in order to train at Maimonides Medical Center in Brooklyn. After completing his research fellowship at Columbia University, he eventually became Chief of Bariatric Surgery at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. In 2004, he joined the Medical Staff at Beth Israel, and he now also serves on the Surgical Faculty at Albert Einstein Medical College of Medicine
Dr. Goodman's specialty areas include:
The LAP-BAND is a breakthrough in gastric procedures because it takes an hour on average to perform the procedure, takes little time in recovery and is minimally invasive. All this means fewer complications and a functional change towards losing weight. By cordoning off a small section of stomach (typically, fifteen cubic centimeters) by means of an adjustable band placed near the top of the stomach, the amount of food that can be ingested is limited and the feeling of fullness lasts longer. The adjustability of the LAP-BAND means that each individual can deflate or inflate the band to meet their personal goals when and how they want.
LAP-BAND is a minimally invasive way to get rid of extra pounds. Call Dr. Goodman and Beth Israel Medical Center in NYC today.
