LAP-BANDŽ System Support Groups
LAP-BANDŽ Support Groups are a part of the variety of educational opportunities offered by South Texas Surgeons as part of our commitment to patient care and successful surgical outcomes. These Groups are designed for patients (and their families and friends) who have already had surgery. Meetings provide an important forum for patients to share common experiences, have questions answered, and gain encouragement from peers.
In addition, we schedule weekly local informational Seminars that are designed to give potential patients the opportunity to learn more about the LAP-BANDŽ System and speak with our physicians and patients who had the procedure at one of our facilities. If you are considering LAP-BANDŽ System, contact us at (toll-free) 866-463-5499 or click here for Seminar dates and times.
