1. Information. At a seminar, our physicians, staff members, and former patients provide the details you need to make an informed decision about the procedure. You will learn benefits and risks. Before attending, you may want to browse our website to find out who is a candidate for weight loss surgery. If you think you are a candidate, a seminar will outline the advantages of this laparoscopic gastric banding procedure, as well as what to expect in terms of weight loss and long-term weight management.
2. Q&A. You have the chance to ask questions at our seminars and to hear questions or comments from other attendees. Since former patients are in attendance, they can also provide valuable insight within the seminar setting. Of course, there will be some inquiries you prefer to make in private. These can be addressed during an individualized consultation with one of our physicians.
3. Resources. We have educational materials for you to take home and review. These resources cover specifics about Lap-Band and its recognition as a minimally invasive and safe medical procedure. There will also be information available about payment options, potential insurance coverage, or financing plans.
4. Family involvement. We know your weight loss journey requires the support of friends and family. They will be more likely to provide this support if they understand the process. So we encourage you to invite a spouse, loved one, or close friend to attend a seminar with you.
5. Common goals. Most individuals who attend our seminars share the goal of freeing themselves from the health complications of obesity. If you have concerns about making a dramatic change, it often helps to attend a seminar and a support group meeting so you can interact with other individuals wishing to improve their quality of life.
Remember, seminar attendance is highly encouraged if you have an interest in Lap-Band. To attend the next seminar sponsored by The Gastric Banding Group, please contact us or sign up online for a reservation and location information.
