LAP-BAND New York City
For some morbid obesity isn't just a battle, it can seem like an insurmountable obstacle. If you find it difficult to shed the weight regardless of your attempts, then it's time to consider a serious health treatment alternative. LAP-BAND surgery is an opportunity to experience a healthier you. At Beth Israel Medical Center in NY, Dr. John L. Holup, DO is an experienced clinical surgeon who has mastered the procedure and helped hundreds of patients lead healthier, happier lives.
Dr. Holup is a board certified surgeon and a member of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Bariatric Surgery. His training and extensive experience in the field of obesity surgery has proven him to be a highly proficient technical surgeon who has performed over 500 bariatric procedures. He offers the generally safe and reliable results that come with Lap Band surgery, a procedure that involves minimal incisions to insert a band device in the upper part of the stomach. This is done in order to make the stomach pouch smaller, thereby limiting the patients desire to eat. The purpose of the procedure is to produce a sensation of fullness in the patient resulting in steady weight loss. Surgery is a start, but Dr. Holup provides his patients supplemental treatments such as physical therapy and a nutritional plan as therapeutic measures to ensure the long lasting medical benefits of LAP-BAND surgery. This FDA cleared procedure is less invasive than gastric bypass surgery because LAP-BAND doesn%u2019t rely on stomach stapling, and can be adjusted as needed. Dr. Holup%u2019s staff is committed to ensuring your wellness by giving the support you need, from Pre-Op through reaching your weight loss goals.
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
