Dr. Michael Trahan joins us again to discuss more about weight loss surgery. He explains that surgery candidates for the lap band operation are 40 or over with no serious medical problems, low risk for anesthetic complications, psychologically stable and have a realistic outlook.
The lap band procedure is considered a lower risk surgery. Procedure is an ideal operation for someone who can’t have bypass, results may be a bit less drastic. Martha Jefferson Hospital has a Weight Loss Surgery Seminar every month and has one on May 7th coming up.
Call 1-888-652-6663 to learn more.
At Martha Jefferson we require that someone who is interested come to one of our free seminars to learn more detail about the pluses and minuses of both procedures. At that seminar we offer a questionnaire that you can fill out if you’re interested in being considered…and from there we’ll contact you and start the interview process.
