The Lap Band Surgery Center: Review of Lap Band Surgery Issues From Recent Studies
Date:6/15/2013

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 15, 2013

Lap band surgery does get in the news, but conclusions aren't always so positive as those found in the June 6, 2013 MedPageToday article, “Mildly Obese Can Benefit From Gastric Band” (medpagetoday.com/Endocrinology/Obesity/39672). Apparently, those with a BMI between 30 to 35 were able to significantly reduce health risks and also lose an impressive amount of weight. However, Lap Band Surgery's Dr. Joseph Naim warns patients that lap band surgery can't heal everything, and that the surgery aspect takes some thought and risk assessment.

Some of the MedPageToday information is found in many studies, such as the fact that weight loss tends to also reduce diabetes, heart and lung problems, and even depression. One of the more impressive points made by the research team was that first-year weight loss ranged between 50 to over 78 pounds. Other positive points included reductions of co-morbidities, or significant threats to a patient's life span, by up to and beyond 90%, a year after lap band surgery. The study was a review of six separate studies, and over 75% of the study participants were female.

It's worth pointing out, mentioned Lap Band Surgery Center's Dr. Naim, that most of the studies mentioned on MedPageToday didn't cover follow-up information on lap band patients beyond a few years. One study did show an increasing average weight loss of over 65 pounds by year four, and over 71 pounds of weight loss by year five, but the other five studies didn't have follow-up information after year three. Most patients tend to keep on the lap band far beyond three years post-surgery.

Of course, there were some complications - even an outpatie
