GASTRIC BYPASS / LAP-BAND SURGERY

Dr. Penson helps individuals who are considering having surgery or who have already had surgery. Making the decision to have surgery can be a difficult one and it is important to determine what the best decision is for you. It can be helpful to have a safe place to discuss your feelings during the decision making process. Having bariatric surgery does not by itself guarantee successful weight loss - surgery is only one of many tools that will help you achieve your goals.

Some key factors to success include: following the diet, exercise, and proper use of nutritional supplements. Additionally, receiving ongoing support to work on any psychological or emotional issues that contributed to the weight problems in the first place or help the individual to adjust to new experiences post-surgery offer increased long-term success.
