Go From Obese to...OMG!

Lexington, KY Bariatric Surgery: Lap Band Adjustable Gastric Banding

 

The bad news is that, like most of the country, Lexington, Kentucky has seen an increased frequency of obesity among its population. But the good news is that scientific advances have made Lexington, KY bariatric surgery more effective than before. Obesity help like weight loss surgery is often necessary when dieting and exercising can’t help a patient lose weight. There are two commonly performed procedures. First, gastric bypass surgery involves dividing the stomach in two pouches and then bypassing food from the top pouch to the intestines. Second, gastric banding is similar in that it divides the stomach into two sections; however, Lap Band® surgery does not involve a bypass and uses a belt-like gastric band instead of staples. Check the left-hand calculator to see if your Body Mass Index (determined with your height and weight) and medical conditions might make you eligible for gastric bypass or gastric banding in Lexington.

Your Lexington bariatric surgery evaluation might take place at any number of Lexington’s medical systems. The Lexington health care network includes Saint Joseph’s Hospital, the University of Kentucky Medical Center, Central Baptist Hospital, and Lexington Medical Center.

In addition to its medical resources, Lexington, which is in Fayette county, has many tourist activities. If you enjoy music, you might want to get tickets to a bluegrass performance. With the nickname “Horse Capital of the World,” Lexington is home to Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland Race Course, and Thoroughbred Center. For insight into Shaker life, visit Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.
