Why do I perform the Lap Band procedure?

“I struggled with my weight for many years. After being amazed at the success of my patients with the band, I underwent Lap Band surgery in 2002. I have lost 100 pounds and kept it off. I believe I have a special understanding of what it takes to be successful with the Lap Band that has allowed me to create a comprehensive program tailored to the success of our patients.”
