“Most diet plans were too hard for me to stick to long term; I would lose weight but I always gained it back the minute I went off the plan. I felt isolated, and physically I had knee and back pain, chronic GERD and asthma. My father, a physician who had seen me struggle my whole life, told me about the LAP-BAND® System and encouraged me to look into it. I learned that if you are ready and willing to commit to a new lifestyle, then the LAP-BAND® is right for you.”

Lap-Band Weight Loss Surgery

If you are seriously overweight and diets and exercise simply aren’t working for you, the Lap Band bariatric surgery can help. The minimally invasive procedure involves placing an adjustable band around your stomach to make it smaller, so you eat less, safely lose weight and keep it off.

Maples Surgical Centre is hosting a Lap-Band Information Seminar for those interested in learning about an effective sustained weight loss treatment that more than 773,565 people have received worldwide.

Terrie Cantin, Registered Nurse & Program Coordinator, will be hosting the seminar and cover topics such as:

  • What is the Lap-Band and how does it work?
  • How much weight will I lose and how fast?
  • What are the benefits of the Lap-Band versus other weight loss procedures?
  • What are the risks and how fast is the recovery?
  • How will the Maples Surgical Centre support me after the procedure?
  • How do I know if I am a candidate for the procedure?

If you have a family member or a friend who is also interested in the Lap-Band program, we encourage their attendance.

We look forward to seeing you there!

“At 291 lbs I feared my son would soon be embarrassed to have a severely overweight mom and maybe even start to resent me. Other sincere efforts to lose weight were not working and I knew I had to do something. I started looking into gastric bypass but was not impressed with the idea of having my insides rearranged. I chose the LAP-BAND® because it is minimally invasive and can be adjusted.”
