Adhering to the idea that a jack-of-all-trades is a master of none, Gastric Banding Medical Group does one thing well: they change lives. As a dedicated Lap-Band system center of excellence, the clinic specializes in helping people reach their weight-loss goals with a procedure that's less invasive than traditional gastric-bypass surgery. Medical director Dr. Ronald L. Gertsch leads the team of bariatric surgeons at the state-licensed and Medicare-certified center, earning a highly respected accreditation through the Bariatric Surgery Center Network of the American College of Surgeons in the process.
Its state-of-the-art facility provides a comfortable backdrop for the procedure, which, like squeezing into a cherished childhood cummerbund, reduces stomach capacity and restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time. The doctors also facilitate the journey toward health with advice on diet and exercise as well as noninvasive laser lipo treatments.
