Go From Obese to...OMG!

Minneapolis, MN Gastric Bypass Surgery and Gastric Banding (LAP-Band)

Do you have sleep apnea? Diabetes? Hypertension (high blood pressure)? Another medical condition? Was this condition caused or made worse because of obesity? If so, your doctor may have advised you to look into obesity help like gastric banding in Minneapolis, Minnesota, especially if you’ve attempted to lose weight with diet and exercise, but you have not been successful. With a BMI above 40, a Minneapolis, MN gastric surgeon may encourage you to consider one of the currently available bariatric surgery methods: gastric bypass surgery, vertical banded gastroplasty, gastric band, or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch. Exceptions may be made (that is, you might qualify with a lower BMI) if you also have one of the aforementioned obesity-related medical problems. One of the most frequently done methods of weight loss surgery, Lap Band® surgery involves dividing the stomach into two sections with a band that resembles a belt in function.

Southwestern Minnesota is home to many health systems. To name a few, in Minneapolis is Abbott Northwestern Hospital, the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, and Hennepin County Medical Center (aka HCMC).

If you go to Minneapolis for the Lap Band® surgery or a different weight loss surgery, you could also make some time to enjoy the other sights and activities that tourists find in the region. For a relaxing option, stroll through the Minnesota Sculpture Garden. If you like architecture, consider the Stone Arch Bridge at Saint Anthony’s Falls. Other choices: Guthrie Theater, the Skyways, and Walker Art Center.
