Go From Obese to...OMG!

Memphis, TN Lap Band Surgery

With obesity on the rise in Memphis, Tennessee and elsewhere in the United States, doctors and insurance companies are beginning to advocate weight loss surgery (called bariatric surgery) more and more as a way to combat health complications associated with obesity and get patients obesity help. After an evaluation, your Memphis, TN gastric surgeon may suggest Lap Band® surgery, biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch, vertical banded gastroplasty, or gastric bypass surgery. Two of these bariatric surgery procedures are used more nowadays: gastric banding (Lap Band®) and gastric bypass surgery. You may need a gastric band or other procedure if your BMI exceeds 40 (or 35 and you have sleep apnea, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity-related heart disease, or another complication).

Going to southwestern Tennessee for gastric bypass surgery or Lap Band® surgery can be a good idea for a few reasons. First, Memphis is near many medical centers with qualified surgeons who could perform your weight loss surgery procedures. Some of these hospitals and medical centers are Methodist University Hospital, Saint Francis Hospital, and the University of Tennessee at Memphis Health Science Center.

The other reason to consider Memphis weight loss surgery procedures is because there are many tourist attractions in Memphis to visit before your bariatric surgery is scheduled. You could stop by Graceland if you are an Elvis fan, go to the Memphis Zoo, or visit the National Civil Rights Museum. With a history so deeply rooted in music, be sure to catch a performance before you leave.
