Lap band and other bariatric surgeries now available at Healthpointe

La Mirada, California (PRWEB) October 27, 2015

Healthpointe clinics are now offering Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery throughout Southern California including Los Angeles County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, and Orange County.

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgery, more commonly referred to as lap band surgery, is a procedure that restricts the amount of food that can enter the stomach. Created to assist obese patients with a BMI exceeding 35 or for those experiencing weight-related comorbidities, Healthpointe’s Lap Band Surgery is a surefire method to reduce weight when exercise and diet have failed to make adequate improvements. Lap band surgery is an FDA approved procedure that is performed by inserting a camera into a small incision and placing a band around the upper part of the stomach to form a smaller pocket meant to contain food.

Healthpointe’s newest bariatric surgeon, Dr. Stewart E. Rendon, will be performing lap band surgeries for patients in need. Having completed his fellowship in Bariatric and Laparoscopic Surgery at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, Dr. Rendon is highly qualified to administer various bariatric procedures including Lap Band surgery. Additionally, Dr. Rendon is well-versed in stent-graft repair, resection, hepatic cyst treatment, abdominal aneurysms, ulcers, gastric bypass, transmyocardium reperfusion studies, cardiomyopathy, and more.
