14 years of Lap-Band ServicesGastric Banding Surgery Changes People's Lives

As with all weight-loss surgery, lap band surgery is a change in someone's life. That's why The Bariatric Group, a Monterey, Mexico-based medical group, practices a multi-disciplinary approach to its lapband surgery. This approach starts with a patient analysis by our full-time Bariatric Surgery Team, which will use their training, skills and experience when they perform your lap band surgery and change your life.

Dr. Arturo Rodriguez, a graduate of the University of Monterrey, heads this team. He became chief of surgery at the Navy Medical Center and now shares his experience in Lap Band and Realize Band surgery with medical surgeons.

Patients receive personal consultations with the doctor to identify which of the two different kinds of bands should be used for their particular case. Following the gastric banding surgery, Dr. Rodriguez and his team continue their counseling to help patients maintain a permanent sustained weight loss.

The team teaches patients how to adjust their lifestyles. Patients need to change their diet and eating habits first. Then they need to learn how to properly get back into physical activity and begin a proper exercise routine. Finally, the Bariatric Team stays with the patient for long-term care and suggests support groups with fellow lap band surgery patients.
