Dr. Terry Simpson personally explains how Lap-band surgery works. It is the only weight loss surgery that does not include removal of portions of your stomach and intestines. The Laparoscopic band can be removed returning your system to the way it was before surgery. It is adjustable for life…you can increase your food intake if ever you are ill or pregnant. Afterwards you can re-adjust the Lap-band to lose weight again. Phoenix, AZ (602) 234-8995.
