At your appointment you will meet with a True Results Patient Advocate who can answer all questions and has extensive knowledge of the True Results Lap Band program.

  • Initial evaluation of candidacy for surgery (e.g., Body Mass Index - BMI)
  • Detailed review of your insurance benefits and preferred payment options (if available)
  • In-depth explanation of your preferred weight loss procedure and how it compares to other bariatric procedures
  • Meet a Weight Loss Patient Advocate who has achieved lasting weight-loss
  • Q&A

Diagnostic Evaluation:

Our outstanding safety track record is, in part, a result of our complete pre-operative medical evaluations. Our highly trained staff members will review your medical records and perform appropriate tests, which may include: blood work/labs, psychological evaluations, cardiac clearance and any other tests deemed necessary by your surgeon or healthcare professional. Your safety is our first priority, so we take every step necessary to make sure you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Insurance Approval:

Helping you make the Lap Band or other weight loss procedure procedure achievable is part of our commitment to your success. In fact, we have a team of people who do nothing but that. They are your partners — your allies — working on your behalf to obtain approval from your insurance provider. If your current insurance plan does not cover weight loss surgery, your Patient Advocate will help you explore your financing options.

Medically Supervised Weight-Loss Program:

Many insurance carriers require the completion of a 3-12 month medically supervised weight-loss program before approving you for the Lap Band or other weight loss procedure. Our medically supervised weight-loss program satisfies insurance carriers' approval requirements and provides you with a medically sound program, putting you on the path toward lasting weight-loss for life.

Visits with Surgeon:

You’ll meet with your surgeon before your procedure to answer any questions you may have about your procedure. Two to four weeks after the procedure, you will visit with your surgeon for a routine follow-up. Most True Results patients are asked to return for follow-up visits every 6-12 months on a case-by-case basis.

Aftercare Program:

Designed by world-renowned Lap Band pioneer, Dr. Paul O’Brien, our Aftercare is a comprehensive program that tends to the unique needs of each bariatric patient. Our success rate has proven that expert follow-up care managed by highly trained healthcare professionals is the key to long-term weight-loss.

Aftercare includes:

  • Consultation with a nurse practitioner to review current health status, satiety and weight-loss progress — and keep you on track toward reaching your goals
  • Education and support for issues regarding nutrition, exercise, social interaction, etc.
  • Adjustments to the amount of saline fluid in the Lap Band, providing customized levels of satiety (if necessary)
  • Regular updates sent to your surgeon, primary care physician or other healthcare specialists as needed
  • Opportunities to connect with other Lap Band patients and healthcare professionals, like in-person support groups and online forums — both excellent places to share experiences, as well as find information, ideas, support and encouragement
