You should have an appointment two weeks after your LAP-BAND. For those who live far distances and everything seems to be well you can call in for a report and to review additional instructions and answer questions. Please call 801-523-6177 if you are unsure about a follow up appointment.

If there are concerns about any LAP-BAND issues please contact us by email or call. You can been seen if needed in addition to the usual follow up schedule.

After the two week visit we will want to see you again at five weeks from your surgery. Make sure you have started solid foods for a week prior to this appointment for your first fill, if indicated.

We then like to see you every two to four weeks until your adjustment is at the point where there is adequate restriction from the band giving satisfaction from smaller volumes of food, having good weight loss, and not being hungry between meals.
