Not Finding Success with Diet and Exercise in Peoria, IL? Lap Band Surgery May Be the Solution

As a risk factor for diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and numerous other health problems, obesity is cause for concern.   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 25-29% of adults in Illinois and cities like Peoria are obese. If you fall into this category, Peoria, IL obesity help might be necessary to reduce your risk, especially if diet and exercise haven’t been fully successful. Lap Band® surgery is one possibility for Peoria weight loss surgery as is gastric bypass surgery. For both gastric banding and gastric bypass, candidates may need to have a higher than 40 BMI. However, you should ask your Peoria physician about the specific criteria because exceptions might be made if your medical history warrants it. In fact, the surgeon may choose biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch if your BMI is greater than 50 or vertical banded gastroplasty at their discretion. An appointment for a gastric band or other evaluation can be made by contacting your Peoria surgeon.

Three major hospitals are located in Peoria – Proctor Hospital, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, and the Methodist Medical Center of Illinois – with a number of others in the surrounding areas including Eureka Hospital, Pekin Memorial Hospital, and the Hopedale Medical Complex.
