All Book Sales Are Final - No Returns Are Allowed

If you are one of the 40 million Americans overweight to the point of recommended surgical intervention, the Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB or “the band”) 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 you’re considering or preparing for the procedure or already living with the band. Expert laparoscopic surgeon Dr. Robert Sewell and “patient-expert” 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, you’ll hear of the particular challenges with the band, success stories, and even the medical “miracles” (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.
