“Adjustable Gastric Banding can help you achieve successful weight loss.” by Keith McEwen MD

In Indiana today, the rates of obesity are over 33% in adults which are highest in comparison to past years.  Obesity is a startling issue and quite disturbing as it is not only affecting kids but adults as well. Research has proved that obesity is on the rise due to the hectic lifestyles of people,  popularity of fast food, inexpensive poor quality snacks, liquid calories from soda, juice, sugary drinks, and decreased exercise.  With obesity being more common these days many people are opting for lap band surgery to assist them in controlling their weight.  Why are so many avoiding gastric bypass with adjustable gastric banding?  Why are so many obese adults researching weight loss surgery?

The answer is simple. As obesity increases, risks for cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, heart problems, elevated cholesteral, impotenence, sleep apnea, gout, and joint pain increases.  People seek a method that promises a long term weigh loss procedure to assist them in regaining their quality of life.   Adjustable gastric band surgery provides people an opportunity to lose weight steadily and then control their weight.  

Adjustable Gastric Banding, whether the Realize Band  or the Lap-Band System, as been certified as the safest surgical weight loss option available.  Gastric banding is less traumatic on the obese person.  Gastric banding does not require cutting or stapling of the stomach or bowel. Lap Banding requires small incisions, minimal scarring, and can be performed in an outpatient center.  

Gastric banding has fewer risk and side effects involved in comparison to other weight loss procedures, such as Gastric Bypass, Gastric Sleeve, Duedenol Switch.  Adjustable gastric banding has a lower risk of nutrient deficiencies associated with gastric bypass and does not have effect on any other body parts.

Adjustable gastric banding is a safer choice for young women hoping to experience preganancy.  Gastric Banding does not have malabsorbtion issues which is safer for a babies gestational period.
