The benefits of adjustable gastric band surgery are significant weight loss and a reduction in obesity co-morbidities. Not only will the adjustable gastric band help you lose weight, but as you lose weight you will see an overall improvement in your health. Many health conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea are either cured or significantly improved. As your health improves you'll feel better, be able to be more active, save money on medical expenses related to obesity, and increase your life span.
At Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center, we adhere to strict National Institutes of Health (NIH) guidelines to determine who can benefit from adjustable gastric band. We also work closely with your family doctor before and after surgery to monitor your well-being.
