Dr. Garber Appears on Dr. Oz’s Show – With Video
As you previously read, our lead surgeon, Dr. Shawn Garber, offered his insight and expert analysis of the new lap band surgery qualifications on the Dr. Oz show. His take on the effectiveness, non-invasive nature, and viability for small amounts of weight loss was backed up by guests of Dr. Oz who actually had bariatric surgery.
On the show, there was almost unanimous praise for the benefits of bariatric surgery. The drawback that they leaned heavily on was the restricted diet one must adhere to, but despite the lower volume of food, the guests on the show backed up Dr. Garber’s claim that bariatric surgery, while not a cure-all, can provide wonderful benefits to a patient in need of weight reduction. It can help lessen or even eradicate diabetes. It can lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and in the long run extend one’s like (and greatly increase the quality of life as well).
Within our Information Bariatric Videos section you can find the portion of the show that featured our very own Dr. Garber, with positive takes on post-surgery life from some real-life bariatric surgery patients.
