According to recent data, three out of every 10 adults in Louisiana are obese and 65 percent of adults are obese or overweight. Obesity keeps many people from living their life with freedom, energy, and passion. Furthermore, obese adults have 36 percent higher medical expenditures per year compared to adults in a normal weight range.
LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding
Adjustable gastric banding is a safe and healthy weight loss procedure that helps patients achieve long-term weight loss goals. In this procedure, the surgeon places a band around the upper part of the stomach, effectively reducing the stomach’s size so that patients are able to eat smaller meals while still enjoying a sense of fullness. The procedure is adjustable and reversible.
Vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a permanent, non-reversible procedure in which 75 percent of the stomach is removed. The result is a stomach that’s similar in shape to a banana. Patients who undergo this procedure also enjoy a sense of fullness from very small meals.
