Bio

I have been in general surgery practice for 25 years. My specialty interests are in bariatric/weight loss surgery, laparoscopic abdominal surgery(cholecystectomy, appendectomy, hiatal hernia repair,etc) I am certified by the American Board of Surgery.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

When you feel ready: The advantage of laparoscopic surgery of any kind, including gallbladder removal, is the speedier recovery compared to comparable open procedures for the same problem. My recommendation is, when your comfort level allows you to, you can resume normal activity, including sex. You may have some discomfort after the activity, but there are no incisions to heal, hence you can do no harm.

Low risk procedure: Lap band is a low risk procedure, with regards to potential for surgical complications. It requires strict patient compliance with diet restrictions post op for success. Unlike gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, it is less successful for overall weight loss and resolution of medical problems related to obesity, i.e. Diabetes. In committed patients it works well.
