Also known as bariatric surgery, lap band surgery is an increasingly popular weight loss surgery that guarantees patients long-term weight loss. Dr. Naim from The Lap Band Center wishes to give readers a brief tutorial on this revolutionary weight loss technique.

Dr. Naim attended medical school at New York City’s Mount Sinai School of Medicine. After his residency at New York Methodist he undertook a fellowship in Minimally Invasive Bariatric Surgery. He has also received numerous distinguished honors such as the Faculty Certificate of Recognition for Scientific Presentation, The Highest Research Productivity Award, and the Resident Achievement Award.

Dr. Naim has also been published in various medical journals and reviews.

Dr. Naim specialized in laparoscopic gastric bypass, open gastric bypass, Revisional surgery, Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, and lap band placement procedures and has been a top expert in this field since 2004. He is currently the head doctor at The Lap Band Center and is highly respected by his colleagues and loved by his patients. Amidst his demanding schedule, he graciously found the time to educate readers on bariatric, or lap band surgery.

1.    A summary of Lap Band surgery
Lap band surgery is the insertion of a device, or band, around the top portion of the patient’s stomach, creating a small pouch. This technique is known as the laparoscopic surgical technique. By reducing the patient’s stomach capacity, long term weight loss can be achieved as the surgery introduces an earlier feeling of satiety every time the patient eats. As the lap band is adjustable, the band can be tightened or loosened to control the patient’s level of satiety. It is also reversible and can be removed at any time. The insertion and removal of the device will be done through what is known as a "keyhole" surgery, which reduces scaring and recovery time.

2.    The risks and recovery period
Like any form of surgery, there are certain risks involved when going under the knife. However, patients should keep in mind that lap band surgery is the first Food and Drug (FDA) adjustable gastric band approved for weight loss. Additionally, as the surgery is done laparoscopically and induces less scaring and recovery time, patients will be up and about merely weeks after the surgery. Aside from an initial X-ray and several post-surgery visits to the doctor, lap band patients find that the general recovery period is short and bearable.

3.    Guaranteed weight loss
Dr. Naim guarantees that patients will notice visible and long-term weight loss results. Furthermore, with extreme weight loss comes the lowered risk of obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, and many more. Patients who have undergone lap band surgery have testified that they now have a new hold on life. With obesity and its health risks at bay, they can now do all the things they have always wanted to try their hand at.
