Darien, Connecticut (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
The team at LifeBand® is pleased to announce that they now offer LAP-BAND® surgery, a safe and effective weight loss surgery option. Thanks to the LAP-BAND® procedure, patients who are obese or morbidly obese can achieve a healthier weight and avoid serious medical problems often associated with a high body mass index (BMI), such as heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes, and different kinds of cancers.
Dr. Passaretti offers a unique surgical experience through LifeBand®, his private and modern surgical facility. The LifeBand® experience emphasizes patient care, patient education, one-on-one attention, and affordability that does not compromise quality.
What Is LAP-BAND® Surgery?
LAP-BAND® surgery is a bariatric procedure in which the size of the stomach is reduced with an adjustable band. By reducing the size of the stomach, patients consume fewer calories and experience reduced sensations of hunger. This combination of reduced hunger and stomach capacity promotes safe and effective weight loss.
The Advantages of LAP-BAND® Surgery
LAP-BAND® surgery is minimally invasive. The entire procedure can be completed in about an hour using precise instruments inserted through small incisions around the stomach. Scarring is minimal and the recovery process is manageable.
The LAP-BAND® procedure does not involve major surgical revisions of the stomach. Other procedures for surgical weight loss, such as gastric bypass, involve major changes to the digestive tract, making any post-surgical adjustments or reversals difficult. With LAP-BAND®, the procedure is entirely reversible and adjustable.
The LifeBand® Difference
While patients can go to other bariatric surgery centers to undergo a LAP-BAND® procedure, LifeBand® offers a number of important benefits.
Patients who visit LifeBand® experience upscale care in an advanced weight loss surgery facility. One-on-one attention is provided before, during, and after the LAP-BAND® procedure, helping patients during every step of the process.
Dr. Passaretti and his team are also pleased to assist patients when making financial decisions about the LAP-BAND® procedure. Multiple payment options are available at LifeBand®, including monthly financing through CareCredit™. By offering flexibility without compromising safety or quality, more patients in the greater Fairfield County area can experience the advantages of LAP-BAND® and start on the road toward a healthier and more fulfilling life.
