Pre-Operative Education Class
There will be an additional information seminar to learn what to expect from the LAP-BAND and provide you with the tools necessary to be successful. We have a full support staff to cover nutrition, emotional issues, guidelines for avoiding problems, exercise and additional support options if needed. Most of the support staff have LAP-BANDs themselves and know what it is like having been through the process themselves. Our program is unique in this aspect for the number of our staff who have the band. Our primary program director has the most experience in the region. The Pre-operative class information will be available once you have completed your registration.
Consult With Dr. Hansen
Prior to surgery you will meet with Dr. Hansen who will perform an exam and answer any final questions you may have prior to surgery. Prescriptions for after surgery will be given to you at this visit with the request to fill these and bring them with you to your surgery. A final list of key principles at this point in the process will be reviewed with you and are listed below.
Your success is our goal. Follow the program and it will work. Please let us know if you have any questions. We want you to feel well informed as much as possible about your LAP-BAND procedure.
