Surgery or Lapband Surgery Changes People's Lives
As with all weight-loss surgery, LAPBAND surgery is a change in someone's
life. That's why The Bariatric Group, a Monterey, Mexico-based medical
group, practices a multi-disciplinary approach to its lapband surgery.
This approach starts with a patient analysis by our full-time Bariatric
Surgery Team, which will use their training, skills and experience when
they perform your lap-Band surgery and change your life.
Dr. Arturo Rodriguez, a graduate of the University of Monterrey, heads
this team. He became chief of surgery at the Navy Medical Center and now
shares his experience in Laparoscopic Adjustable Silicone Gastric Banding-LAPBAND
surgery-with medical surgeons.
Following the Gastric Banding Surgery, Dr. Rodriguez and his team continue
their counseling to help patients maintain a permanent sustained Weight
Loss and thatís the main purpose of this forum.
The team teaches patients how to adjust their lifestyles. Patients need to
change their diet and eating habits first. Then they need to learn how to
properly get back into physical activity and begin a proper exercise
routine. The forum is made to let people that already have the Lapband
Surgery to learn from others who are in different stages in their Weight
Loss. Finally, the Bariatric Team stays with the patient for long-term
care and suggests support groups with fellow Lap Band Surgery patients
