REGISTER TO ATTEND A FREE INFORMATION SESSION BY Dr. BALLANTYNE ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS SURGERY

LAPAROSCOPIC GASTIC BYPASS & LAP BAND ARE BOTH DISCUSSED AT ALL MEETINGS

Annette and Jane registering potential patients at an early evening information session in the Heickemian Conference Center at Hackensack University Medical Center.

The Information Seminars are informal discussions that educate potential patients about the benefits and risks of weight loss surgery.  An informal atmosphere facilitates a free exchange of questions and ideas.

In the Information Seminars, Dr. Ballantyne details the National Institute of Health (NIH) guidelines that indicate which patients qualify for weight loss surgery. He describes in detail Laparoscopic Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass and Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (Lap Band).  The short term outcomes, complications and long term weight loss for these operations are compared and contrasted. The criteria that patients might use to select between these operations are extensively explored. Most importantly, everyone gets to ask as many questions as they feel are needed to reach an understanding of the complex issues facing individuals who are considering weight loss surgery.
