Georgia Coast Surgical is proud to announce the launch of our newly designed website. When you visit, you will find that the new site offers a clean look and easy access to information about bariatric surgery options such as the popular Lap-Band procedure. Georgia Coast Surgical also provides the visitors with a sample of weight loss surgery testimonials from patients describing the change the procedure has made in their lives.
The new site includes a BMI Calculator, which can help you determine if you are a candidate for bariatric surgery in Georgia. In general, candidates for weight loss surgery need to have a BMI of 40 or higher, or of between 30 and 40 if they have one or more medical complications related to their obesity. These complications (also known as co-morbidities) include Type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and hypertension (high blood pressure).
The site includes a brief video of Lap Band surgery, a minimally invasive form of weight loss surgery that involves the placement of an adjustable band near the top of the patient’s stomach. Through medically supervised loosening or tightening of the band following the bariatric surgery, the patient will feel full after consuming less food. These adjustments, together with other lifestyle changes, can lead to gradual, but significant, weight loss.
The new Georgia Coast Surgical website also includes an affordability calculator to help calculate the cost of weight loss surgery (After the tool adds up how much you are currently spending on food, prescriptions and other weight loss programs, you may decide that the choice in bariatric surgery Georgia Coast Surgical provides is affordable).
Finally, the new website also provides a way to register for free weight loss surgery seminar at the clinic. If you and your doctor have been seeking a more convenient alternative to a metro Atlanta bariatric surgery center, but without compromising the quality of care, you owe it to yourself to take a moment to visit GeorgiaCoastSurgical. You will find the information you need to have a better discussion with your doctor about a decision that could change your life.
