1 800 GET THIN, a leading proponent of patient safety and marketer of the FDA approved Lap Band, is pleased to congratulate Governor Brown on signing SB 100, the “Surgery Center Bill”, into law. This new law is designed to increase patient safety at surgery centers throughout the State. In its continued commitment to patient safety, 1 800 GET THIN ensures that all surgery centers performing Lap Band surgery on individuals who call 1 800 GET THIN are fully accredited, meeting high safety standards that are fully in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. The safety record for these centers are among the highest in the country.
1 800 GET THIN has assisted thousands of people in Southern California to find new health, a better life, and lose weight. Obesity is the second leading cause of death in the United States, and 1 800 GET THIN takes its role as a leader in attacking this rapidly expanding health epidemic very seriously. The Lap-Band procedure is FDA approved and has helped to improve and save hundreds of thousands of lives. Our highest priority is patient safety and to work with facilities and physicians that provide the highest level of care to the community.
Before any patient is allowed to have weight loss surgery, the independent treating physician will perform a battery of diagnostic examinations. Not all individuals will qualify for or will be approved for the surgery. Every facility and physician working with 1 800 GET THIN is required to inform any potential patient of the risks and will also provide a written disclosure for which the patient will sign.
The Lap-Band may be the right answer for those who have failed with diet and exercise.
