The Lap Band Center now offers complementary consultation for their fist time patients. According to Dr. Madan, head doctor at The Lap Band Center, if you are over 30 pounds overweight and wish to make a change for the better, it is time to consider lap band surgery. Many people fail to understand the risks that come with obesity and one way to combat this disease is to lose the weight quickly and healthily.
Obesity related diseases are no laughing matter, many of which have been known to cause death. Life threatening diseases such as heart attack, diabetes, stroke, and liver failure can be avoided when lap band surgery at The Lap Band Center and healthy post-surgery care with Dr. Madan are paired together.
Patients who have undergone lap band surgery with Dr. Madan say that getting the surgery was the easiest part. The hard part comes after whilst trying to adjust to a brand new lifestyle. However with the right motivation, post-surgery lifestyle changes can be as easy as ABC.
Dr. Madan has come up with two important ideas on how lap band surgery patients can ease into a new and improved lifestyle without overexerting themselves.
1. Consuming a balanced diet
A rule of thumb is to ensure that the meal is as colorful as can be. Red tomatoes, white asparagus, orange carrots, yellow peppers and leafy greens make up a healthy and delicious salad. Add croutons and a choice of protein to balance it out. Remember to eat a median portion of carbohydrates a day as excess carbohydrates that are not burned through exercise will convert into unwanted fat. As a lap band patient, the last thing one could possibly want is to regain all the lost weight.
2. Introduce exercise
Starting slow is the way to do it. Set aside some time a day to move around. A suggested activity is to use a skipping rope. The simple and cost-effective method of skipping a few minutes a day is known to be just as effective as running or jogging. Skipping is not only a good form of cardiovascular exercise, it also works out multiple muscles in one’s body. Practice yoga as an additional form of exercise for physical and mental strength. Lap band surgery patients can motivate themselves by signing up for classes with friends.
Over the span of his illustrious career, Dr. Madan has penned over 170 articles and performed the first laparoscopic gastric bypass in the city of Memphis. He has also performed over 2000 weight loss surgeries and is also the first doctor to suggest that non-surgical treatments be implemented for weight-gain post-surgery. Additionally,
Dr. Madan was the former Chief of Laparoendoscopic and Bariatric Surgery Division at the University of Miami. He won the SAGES Young Investigator Award in 2007 and received honors from the American Medical Association Physician's Recognition Award on top of the 2011 and 2012 Patients' Choice Award.
Judging from Dr. Madan’s vast credentials, it comes as no surprise that his support of lap band surgery is a valid one. Losing weight and keeping it off is longer an impossible feat with the help of Dr. Madan and the Lap Band Center.
