Your Lap Band surgeons Dr. Ron Hekier and Dr. Rachael Keilin have been performing weight loss surgery since 2004. We provide care in our office for our weight loss patient in the pre-operative and post-operative setting. We believe that continued followup is the key to maintaining habits that can best work to lose and maintain excess weight loss. As such, we encourage all of our patients to maintain followup with us forever after their procedure, and we want to maintain a long term relationship with all of our patients. Our approach differs from other practices in which the weight loss surgeon does not visit with their patients after surgery for more than one or two visits. We want to team together with our patients to ensure the best possible scenarios for sustained weight loss.
