1-800-GET-THIN - Lap-Band Safety and You
Date:10/4/2011

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 1 800 GET THIN associates with professionals that provide services specifically designed for individuals suffering from obesity and associated diseases resulting from obesity. Our goal, as well as the goal of the centers and professionals we work with, is to attain a healthier and happier life for these individuals.

Every month, there are hundreds of positive success stories from individuals who have received the Lap-Band after first calling 1 800 GET THIN. Just in the last 9 months, 1 800 GET THIN has assisted more than a thousand individuals to regain their health and livelihood by working with facilities and doctors who specialize in the surgical treatment of weight loss. Our highest priority is to work with facilities and physicians that provide the highest level of patient safety while servicing their communities and patients.

1 800 GET THIN only works with accredited facilities that adhere to a strict surgical and pre-operative regimen where they follow extensive safety protocols that are among the most thorough in the industry. Before any patient is allowed to have weight loss surgery, the patient will undergo a battery of diagnostic examinations designed specifically for their safety. Due to these comprehensive tests, many underlying medical conditions that are directly related to obesity are diagnosed and treated. Due to these tests, not all individuals will qualify for or will be approved for the surgery. All surgical procedures, no matter how minor, have risks. Every facility and physician working with 1 800 GET THIN is required to inform any potential patient of the risks and will also provide a written disclosure for which the patient will sign.

The facilities that work with 1 800 GET THIN help more people through the surgical intervention of weight loss than any other program of its kind in California. The safety record for these centers remains
