What does it mean to be a "Super Specialist" in LapBand surgery?

I am frequently asked why I have chosen to narrow the scope of my bariatric surgery practice to Laparoscopic Gastric Banding, as some patients feel they may be better off seeing a surgeon who performs many different forms of bariatric surgery.  My response is simple...

I used to perform other forms of weight loss surgery (gastic bypass, etc.), but I've decided to become a Super Specialist in LapBand weight loss surgery.  Why?  In my opinion, if a patient has decided that Laparoscopic Gastric Band surgery is the operation they want, they should seek out a surgeon who specializes in that particular operation.  Think about it, if you want the plumbing fixed in your home, do you seek out the "handyman", who may know a little about everything, or do you seek out the plumber who has been recommended to you because he/she is the best one out there?  Of course, you seek out the best plumber you can find.  In my mind, it works the same way with bariatric surgery.

The number of operations that the surgeon performs matters.  If the surgeon is performing all kinds of bariatric procedures, he may not do the one you are interested in very often.  Specifically, I perform more LapBand operations in my region of southern New Jersey than anyone else.  This gives me, and my patients, the comfort of knowing I have the most experience with the procedure.  I have chosen to narrow the scope of my bariatric surgery practice, and become a Super Specialist in LapBand surgery, because I want to be the best in the business, and offer my patients the best possible care.

Interested in finding out if LapBand surgery is the one you want to have to achieve lasting weight loss?  Register for one of my free weight loss surgery seminars, held every month, in the evening, and you'll learn everything you need to know to make an informed decision about which surgery is right for you!  I discuss all of the different forms of weight loss surgery in simple terms.  There's no obligation to make an appointment to see me in the office, and no obligation to have surgery.
