If you are one of the 40 million Americans overweight to the point of recommended surgical intervention, the Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB or Ă‚â€śthe bandĂ‚â€ť) may be the safest, most effective weight-loss method for you.Unlike conventional weight-loss surgery, which can lead to serious medical complications and nutritional deficiencies, the AGB is a minimally invasive procedure that leaves the digestive system completely intact. Weight Loss Surgery with the Adjustable Gastric Band provides a comprehensive weight management program, whether youĂ‚â€™re considering or preparing for the procedure or already living with the band. Expert laparoscopic surgeon Dr. Robert Sewell and Ă‚â€śpatient-expertĂ‚â€ť Linda Rohrbough evaluate all the promises, hype, and misinformation about this popular surgical solution-including preparation, the procedure itself, and the required post-op lifestyle changes. Drawing from interviews with dozens of AGB patients, youĂ‚â€™ll hear of the particular challenges with the band, success stories, and even the medical Ă‚â€śmiraclesĂ‚â€ť (such as remission of type 2 diabetes)-alongside expert insight from nutrition, exercise, and psychology authorities. Weight Loss Surgery with the Adjustable Gastric Band is the essential guide to help you commit to a healthy regime and affect the lifestyle changes to lose weight and manage your hunger-for the rest of your life.
