Robotic Bariatric Surgery
Dr. Long has advanced robotic, laparoscopic, and endoscopic bariatric fellowship training. During our consultation we will compare which options represent the safest and most effective choice for your long-term weight loss.
Revisional Bariatric Surgery
Revisional bariatric surgery may be needed if you have a LAP-BAND or have been derailed in your journey resulting in weight regain. Discover what your revision options may be.
Due to concerns over long-term safety and effectiveness, the LAP BAND (adjustable gastric band) is no longer a currently recommended bariatric surgical option. For information on better surgical weight loss options, please contact the BMCC today to schedule a consult with your bariatric team.
