Pre Surgery Preparations
oBand® Los Angeles wants to make sure that you are adequately educated about the LAP-BAND® and the LAP-BAND® procedure so that you feel comfortable with your decision.
Our surgeons and staff will answer your questions about the LAP-BAND®, the pre-surgery requirements, and life after surgery. Further, throughout the pre-operative process, you will ample opportunity to ask our surgeons and staff any other questions or concerns you may have with your LAP-BAND® surgery.
The first step to learning more about the LAP-BAND® is to attend a weight-loss seminar. Our weight-loss seminars are hosted in person by our surgeons and made available by online webinar.
At weight-loss seminar, you will gain information on the following topics:
Understanding obesity and the health risks involved
The benefits and risks associated with weight-loss surgery
Gastric banding and the options available
Realize Band and LAP-BAND®
The qualification process
After getting a better idea about the LAP-BAND® qualifications, you may want to schedule a private evaluation with one of our surgeons. During the evaluation, you will discuss your weight loss history, health conditions and medical history so that the surgeon can determine if you are a candidate for LAP-BAND® surgery.
Because we understand that you may not feel comfortable addressing your individual concerns in a public weight-loss seminar, use the personal evaluation to learn more and ask any questions you may have.
