There are no simple solutions to treating obesity. Will power plays a part, but more than that it takes support of an experienced Bariatric Surgeon who can offer you the support you need to succeed. At Beth Israel Medical Center in NY, Dr. John L. Holup, DO is an experienced surgeon who can help put you on the path to better heath.
One of the procedures offered by Dr. Holup is the Lap Band. Lap Band is a procedure that involves inserting a band device in the upper part of the stomach so as to create a small pouch where food is stored. As a result of the band, the stomach pouch is smaller and therefore patients feel fuller when they eat. The purpose of the procedure is to produce the sensation of fullness with smaller portions of food, which results in a rapid, steady weight loss. Less food going into the stomach means less weight will eventually be put on by the patient.
Surgery is just the first step; in addition, Dr. Holup offers his patients physical therapy and a steady healthy diet as therapeutic measures to ensure the long lasting medical benefits of lap band surgery. For many, it is a safer and simpler alternative to gastric bypass surgery because the band is supposed to substitute stapling the stomach. This procedure is done in the comfort of a safe and informative medical environment. Dr. Holup is a board certified surgeon who has successfully performed over 500 Bariatric procedures. He is a member of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Bariatric Surgery.
Some of the conditions that are caused by obesity are:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure or heart disease
- Sleep apnea or respiratory complications
- Urinary problems
