Is the Lap Band Surgery the right solution for you? How does it compare to Gastric Bypass? Is it a permanent solution to morbid obesity? If you are considering bariatric surgery, you will have questions about the cost, risks and effectiveness of the surgery.
A complimentary Lap Band Seminar will be offered in September at False Creek Healthcare Centre. Our Lap-Band specialist, Rhonda Winter will spend 2 hours with you and your loved ones to provide you with all the facts that you need to know about losing weight with the Lap Band.
For example, did you know that the Lap-Band can put Type 2 Diabetes into remission? Recent studies have shown that patients with Type 2 Diabetes who use the Lap Band System are more likely to achieve remission of their diabetes versus those who use conventional treatments. In fact, 73% of patients with Type 2 Diabetes achieve remission of their symptoms. 1
