gastric band surgery News

Laparoscopic gastric banding is surgery to help with weight loss. The surgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. The band limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food.After surgery, your doctor can adjust the band to make food pass more slowly or quickly through your digestive system.

Gastric Band Testimonial from Trevor W

Testimonial for Gastric band surgery

Testimonial from Trevor T For Tullia Law

5/5 stars

Exellent service and aftercare.

I left the UK for Belgium on the 27th October for my Gastric Band Operation not knowing what to expect on my arrival there. I was met at the airport by the taxi driver who was ever so polite and helpful who took us to the hotel in Roeselare which was comfortable and was told to be ready the next morning for the trip to the hospital.

At 09:30 on the 28th October the taxi picked us up at the hotel and off we went to the hospital and we were met by Dr Philip V D B in the reception area and his professional manner soon put me at ease by explaining what was to come and asked if I had any questions, I was admitted to hospital and a few hours later was taken for surgery and later woke up in recovery and when ready back to the ward.

The hospital is very clean and the staff carried out their duties professionally and were helpful and communicate in English well and made sure you understood what was happening.

The day of discharge Dr Philip visited me to see how I was and to x-ray the band to see it it was functioning and then made sure that I understood my diet for the following weeks. I then was met by the taxi driver in the foyer and taken back to the hotel to relax until the following afternoon whence once again picked up by the taxi and off to the airport.

I am very satisfied with the way everything went with Dr Philip V D B and his professional services , the friendly hospital staff and clean hospital ward and the taxi service provided and to sum it all up the professional way in which I was treated and handled by Laser Clinics (France) Ltd in Belgium.

For anyone who is thinking about having this operation and worried about it being in another country I would like to put your minds at ease by saying you will have the best care and treatment you will ever want.

Gastric Band Surgeon Discovers Liver Condition

A Gastric Band Surgery Recommendation for Tullia Law

A Testimonial from Liz B For Tullia Law

Posted 18 July 2011

Hello Tullia,

I would like to thank you for the service I received (and still receiving) when I recently underwent my Gastric Band operation on 1st July 2011.

I cannot praise highly enough the people involved. Tullia, who helped make the decision to have the op and with the answer to any question.  Chris Duprez for his easy going manner, his 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude and Doctor Philip and his team. Outstanding.  Even Sam the taxi driver was nice.

From the time my daughter and I were picked up from Brussels Midi station and taken to the hotel, meeting Chris who explained exactly what was to happen the next day, to meeting Doctor Philip and having the op was such a pleasant, relaxing experience I didn't feel as if I was to have an operation.

The aftercare by the staff at the hospital was very good, you easily could imagine that you were the only patient they had. The hospital room itself was very clean and tidy.

Whilst my daughter was supposed to have the Gastric Band operation after me. Doctor Philip decided he could not go ahead with it as he discovered a pre existing liver condition which was unknown to us.

He therefore ended up doing an emergency op on the liver (with another surgeon)

My daughter had to spend time in the intensive care unit. Doctor Philip not only kept me informed personally what was going on but he took me to see my daughter several times so I could see for myself that she was ok. I cannot thank Doctor Philip and his team enough for this as who knows what could have happened if the liver had started to bleed when my daughter was anywhere else other than on the operating table and it could have happened at anytime.

Chris also visited and was willing to change all our travel and hotel arrangements should it have been needed, we were not made to rush our decision and could have stayed in hospital longer if need be.

I really do recommend this team if you are thinking of having a Gastric Band. I feel great and on my way to losing weight and saved money into the bargain. What more can I say go for it its the best decision you will ever make.

Gastric Band testimonial from Christine for Tullia Law

Gastric Band Surgery Testimonial For Tullia Law

Testimonial from Christine For Tullia Law

This is for any one thinking about having surgery done in Belgium ..

I went to have gastric band surgery , in April 2011 through French cosmic surgery and I would recommend this clinic to any one, and the surgeon who carried out my gastric band surgery was very good.

The hospital was very clean ,the staff very friendly and helpful, could not fault any of it.

From the time we reached Belgium we were met at the station by a driver who drove us to a lovely friendly and clean hotel
where all of the staff spoke good English throughout our stay.

We were picked up by another driver later that day and taken to see the surgeon Dr VDB.  You could not ask for a nicer person and everything was explained to me very well.

Went to the hospital next morning had the gastric band fitted, not as painful as I thought it would be after wards as they give plenty of pain relief and I was discharged the next morning after seeing Dr Philip.

I could not have got better treatment if i had done the surgery in England.

I was size 20 and 16 & half stone now down to size 14 and 13 stone in just a short time so Iam very pleased with the results.

I Must say Tullia Law the admin manager was very helpful in every way, she kept in touch by phone at all times before and after we arrived back in England.

Our aftercare nursing manager was so helpful and caring he made me feel relaxed about the surgery , he was just like a friend, before and after, he is so nice.

I would like to thank everyone,  from Tullia,  to everyone involved in my surgery throughout my stay in Belgium.

Regards From a very happy patient

Christine

Gastric Band and Other Obesity Surgery Options

What is Obesity?

Obesity is broadly speaking characterised as being when a person is approximately 100 pounds above the ideal body weight. This can also be determined as a person with a  body mass index (BMI) of 35 to 40 or above.

The best procedure for the patient will be recommended by your bariatric surgeon at the first consultation who will consider all of the factors according to the general health, the weigh, and the attitude of the person. There are certain health factors which will always be taken in to consideration which are known as co-morbid factors which will include high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and sleep apnoea.  In general terms the more weight the person needs to lose, the more radical the type of operation.

Obesity Surgery Options

During the last ten years or so many techniques for weight loss surgery have been developed or perfected. The two most commonly known of these are gastric banding and gastric bypass surgery. There has recently been two new additions to this list which are known as the gastric sleeve (sleeved gastrectomy). and the gastric balloon

Gastric band Surgery

The gastric banding operation involves surgically placing a small adjustable silicone lap band around the upper part of the stomach creating a reduced stomach upper pouch area which restricts the volume of food which the stomach can accept at the time of eating.  This reduces the overall amount of food that the person can consume at any one time. The main advantages of gastric banding include a minimally invasive procedure, a shorter hospital stay, a faster recovery period, and the ability for ongoing adjustments to the band by filling the band with a saline solution which is an easily managed procedure which can be done at regular intervals by the surgeon, or a qualified nurse who has been specially trained to conduct this type of procedure.

Gastric Bypass Surgery

A gastric bypass  is a more radical surgery and has the additional advantage that there will be a more significant weight loss accomplished in a shorter period of time. However the main disadvantages of gastric bypass surgery is that this is a much more invasive surgical procedure, generally requiring at least three days hospitalisation, a higher risk of mal-absorption problems and the possibility of vitamin deficiency.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery

A gastric sleeve operation is executed by excising a fairly large portion of the stomach thereby reducing and reshaping the stomach into a banana shaped pouch. The disadvantages with this  procedure are that it is not as easily managed afterwards, but generally gives a speedier loss of weight.

Gastric Balloon Surgery

There is now a  further development which is known as the gastric balloon which is inserted inside the patients stomach thereby reducing the inner volume of the stomach. The Balloon can be adjusted by the volume of inflation of the balloon. This method is still in its early stages of development at the time of writing this article.
The main result of each of these operations effectively results in a smaller stomach. A reduced stomach not only restrict the volume of food the stomach can accept at any one time, it will also send a subliminal message to brain that the stomach is already full and therefore no further food is called for.

Post Surgery Considerations and Expectations
In many cases after a year has passed the patient will have lost a considerable amount of weight if they have followed the recommendations of the surgeons, have followed a stick diet which will have been recommended by a nutritionalist following surgery, and there have been no other complications.
Depending on the amount of weight loss it is quite common that a person may need further cosmetic surgery to remove access skin or re-shaping of the body mass. The most common of these include a thigh lift, tummy tuck (panniculectomy), complete body lift, a breast lift, breast reduction or an arm lift (brachioplasty).
Any major weight loss procedure normally improves dramatically the self image and self esteem of the patient, an improvement in lift style, quality of life and the most beneficial of is an increased life span.
