Weight Loss Surgery
The Carolinas Center for Weight Loss Surgery is a team of highly motivated and experienced surgeons, nurses and support staff who care for their Lap-Band patients. This includes an efficient and friendly preoperative evaluation and screening process, as well as comprehensive long term follow-up.
The Lap-Band procedure is performed with a very low potential risks and complications associated with other more invasive bariatric procedures.
The National Institute of Health supports the use of bariatric surgery in the severely obese, citing studies that show the procedures often reduce or eliminate many obesity-related conditions. Some of these conditions include hypertension, sleep apnea, diabetes, arthritis, vascular disease, and even some forms of cancer.
It is important to emphasize that weight loss surgery is in no way to be considered cosmetic surgery. Obesity is a chronic, frequently progressing, life-threatening disease. This surgery can improve the lives of those suffering from morbid obesity and the multiple medical illnesses associated with being overweight.
