Dr. Melton currently offers the LAP-BAND�� system by Allergan. This is a comprehensive program through CRMC including pre-op and post-op care for the LAP-BAND�� system. If you are at least 30 pounds overweight, with a BMI of at least 30 kg/m2, and one or more obesity related comorbid conditions, you may be eligible for LAP-BAND��.  The LAP-BAND�� System may be able to help you lose weight, avoid weight-related health risks, and enjoy a more active lifestyle. Many factors can contribute to obesity but one central theme of the Allergan LAP-BAND�� System is how you got here doesn���t matter- it���s what you do next that counts.

            At Surgical Associates of South Georgia, we can help you take that next step. Essentially, the LAP-BAND�� System limits the amount of food your stomach can hold at one time. The band can be adjusted and monitored by your physician depending on your individual needs. This fine-tuning allows you to gradually lose the weight and keep it off.  All of this information, and more, can be found at Allergan.


             If you feel the LAP-BAND�� system may be for you, feel free to contact our office for information about attending a seminar led by Dr. Melton.
