Patient Switches from Band to Plication
“I had lapband surgery in 2007 and, although I did lose weight, just didn’t feel right about having a foreign object in my body for some reason. After hearing about the Plication procedure, I felt like it was exactly what I was looking for. I just had my band removed and will be returning soon for Plication. Going from Band to Plication takes a special expertise. I’m a surgeon and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. You shouldn’t either.” (Maria)
