Pre Surgery Education
oBand Los Angeles encourages you to take an informed decision to get rid of obesity. That is why, as a part of patient education, we provide information about LAP-BAND. Our surgeons and staff are trained to answer any queries or doubts you may have before taking your decision. These are normal as surgery is a big decision, and we also urge you to use the consultation time before the surgery, to get all your doubts clarified, about the surgery itself, requirements for care, before and after, and so on.
Get introduced to LAP-BAND via our free weight loss seminar. At these seminars, available to the public via online webinars, our surgeons answer questions on different aspects. Important issues covered include:
What constitutes obesity
Health risks and obesity related disorders
What are the benefits of weight loss surgery
What are the risks of weight loss surgery
What are the available options for the gastric band procedure
What is Realize Band and LAP-BAND®
Qualifications to undergo the procedure
The free seminar and qualification session are designed to fill you in about LAP-BAND. After this, you may have further questions and want more detailed, personal answers. To provide opportunity for such one-on-one interaction, we offer a free evaluation session with one of the surgeons on board. At this session that is meant to screen you as a LAP-BAND candidate, the surgeon discusses critical issues including your medical history, weight loss history, and history of medical conditions.
