Gastric Lap Band Fills
The Altschuler Center for Weight Loss and Wellness offers post-surgical care to all Lap Band patients. Despite where you received your Lap Band operation, Dr. Altschuler is ready to provide you with the support and care you need to continue working towards your weight
One of the biggest benefits to the Lap Band system is that it is adjustable, helping you to maintain your weight loss long term. Many Lap Band patients are offered this service by the physician that performs the initial operation, but this is not always an option. Even in situations where your surgeon initially offered this service, a simple relocation on either your part or that of your physicians could leave you without the ability to receive adjustments to your Lap Band. Lap Band patients that received their operation outside of the United States are also often in need of adjustments, and Dr. Gail Altschuler is able to help.
At Altschuler Center for Weight Loss and Wellness we applaud your decision to pursue a healthier lifestyle with the help of the Lap Band. We can help you to stay on track through proper adjustments and support during the months and years following your Lap Band procedure. Whether you are left without your surgeons support due to relocation or you find that your physician is too busy to provide you with the proper care that you deserve, Altschuler Center for Weight Loss and Wellness can fill the void and provide you with much need post-surgical support.
