Two surgeons from Northeast Texas recently presented their experience with the Lap Band surgery for weight loss. Dr. Ron Hekier, and Dr. Rachael Keilin, presented their 2-year clinical experience at the Advanced Practice Builders Workshop sponsored by Inamed, a division of Allergan in Las Vegas, NV.

The group chronicled their experience with establishing a weight loss program in Texarkana, a region that provides health care to patients from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

“We were honored to have been chosen to present our success and experience with the Lap Band surgery for weight loss. Statistically safer than gastric bypass, we believe it is the preferred surgical option for weight loss.” says Dr. Ron Hekier.

“Whether our patient is from Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, or a Louisiana Lap Band patient, a complete multidisciplinary program has been established to optimize patient outcome for surgical weight loss. We were honored to be asked to share our experience with our surgical colleagues from across the United States,” says Dr Rachael Keilin.

The group detailed their approach to patient education and program growth at the workshop, which they believe, is a key to their success in establishing the only surgical weight loss program in the region.

Offering the Lap Band surgery since 2004, Dr. Rachael Keilin and Dr. Ron Hekier are the sole providers in Texarkana of the Lap Band for surgical obesity treatment.
