Dr. Grossbard's Lap Band Surgery Story

Dr. Grossbard's Story

Dr. Grossbard, Male

Weight Lost:

105 lbs.

I’ve been a general surgeon for 20 years, and I have struggled with my own weight problems for a long time. I started doing LAP-BAND® surgery around the same time that I got my own LAP-BAND® — in October 2002. After the procedure, I was back at home the next day.

Because it’s minimally invasive, I was able to resume operating two days later. And, because I’m living with a LAP-BAND® myself, I understand the many issues and questions that my surgical weight loss patients have, and feel very good about being able to help them with their weight loss goals. It is absolutely magnificent to see a patient go from taking six pills a day to requiring no medication within a matter of a couple of weeks.

It is the first time in my medical career as a surgeon where I can effectively treat a chronic medical disease.
