Lap Band Surgery in Fairway Shores

Bariatric Surgery

Dr. Christian Birkedal specializes in helping people with their weight issues. He has more than 15 years of practical experience in this field. He has brought about joy and good health in the lives of all his patients. He is well-known throughout Fairway Shores for his dexterous surgeries, notably the lap band surgery and hiatal hernia surgery. He is highly proficient in minimally invasive surgery as well.

Bariatric and Lap Band Surgery

The lap band surgery is a relatively modern type of bariatric surgery. An adjustable band is strapped around the top portion of your stomach in order to control your intake of food. As opposed to gastric bypass surgery, you need not stay at the hospital for long hours. The lap band surgery itself takes around an hour to finish, whereas the gastric bypass surgery takes more than 2 hours to complete. The possible ensuing complications in a lap band surgery are not as serious as they could be in a gastric bypass.

Gastric bypass surgery is a more radical procedure and results in a quick and higher rate of fat reduction. The lap band takes a longer time but is not as invasive and the lap band can removed when the desired results are achieved, whereas gastric bypass is permanent. Every type of bariatric surgery requires equal amounts of time for preparation. The resistance to insulin after undergoing each type of surgery is equally improved.

Lap Band Surgery Needs in Fairway Shores

Qualifying for Bariatric Surgery

Bariatric surgery is not available for everyone who is seeking a quick fix for weight issues. You need to meet certain criteria in order to opt for lap band surgery. Don 't worry! You would not need to take any examination. Here are the basic requirements,

  • BMI of over 40 or higher
  • Must be 18 years of age or older
  • BMI of 30 or higher if the individual suffers from comorbidity.

Cost of Lap Band Surgery and the Complications Involved

Every surgery calls for a substantial sum of money, and bariatric surgery is no exception. However, if you are able to follow the diet given by the doctor before and after the surgery, the transformation of your body weight will not only be distinctly visible to others, but will also be clearly felt by you. The common after effects of bariatric surgery include nausea or an allergy to anesthesia.

In order to take an appointment with Dr. Birkedal for a consultation or a diagnosis, you can either call his office at (386) 231-3530, or personally visit his workplace at Florida Hospital Medical Memorial Center to schedule an appointment.
