Dr. Melton currently offers the LAP-BANDÒ system by Allergan. This is a comprehensive program through CRMC including pre-op and post-op care for the LAP-BANDÒ 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-BANDÒ.  The LAP-BANDÒ 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-BANDÒ 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-BANDÒ 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-BANDÒ system may be for you, feel free to contact our office for information about attending a seminar led by Dr. Melton.
