WLS Seminars

DayOne Health has the pleasure to present you with access to our free comprehensive weight loss seminars. The seminars are brought to you by Emmi Solutions and were reviewed by our bariatric team for accuracy. Both lap-band and gastric sleeve seminars will provide you with general information regarding each weight loss surgery, such as surgery details and general dietary instructions. While they are informative, you should not treat seminars alone as a sufficient resource to determine your best weight loss surgery option. Following the seminar, we advise all patients to visit our practice and speak to the bariatric surgeon and dietitian in person to learn more details about the weight loss journey and necessary lifestyle changes.

In order to receive full access to the materials, we will ask you to fill out a submission form with your name, date of birth, and e-mail address. We will need your personal information to create an individual account and provide you with password protected access to the informational session. As soon as our patient advocate receives your submission, she will send you the seminar link where you’ll be able to log in.

LAP-BAND Seminar

The lap-band seminar will discuss general diet recommendations and lifestyle changes advised before the surgery, lap-band surgery itself, and post-operative instructions. The tutorial also discusses follow up care and lap-band adjustments. We recommend all of our patients to see the seminar before meeting with the bariatric surgeon. Please note any questions you have after watching the seminar, and bring them to discuss during your consultation with the doctor.

Gastric Sleeve

The gastric sleeve seminar is intended for patients interested in learning more about the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, recovery, and necessary post-operative dietary changes. The seminar discusses an overview of the procedure and how this will change your lifestyle, expectations for surgery, details of the procedure, post-operative care, and possible risks and complications. To learn if you are a good candidate, visit our clinic and talk to the DayOne Health bariatric team during your consultation appointment.

Important LAP-BAND® System Safety Information

Indications: The LAP-BAND® System is indicated for weight reduction for patients with obesity, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 40 kg/m2 or a BMI of at least 30 kg/m2with one or more obesity-related co-morbid conditions. It is indicated for use only in adult patients who have failed more conservative weight reduction alternatives, such as supervised diet, exercise and behavior modification programs. Patients who elect to have this surgery must make the commitment to accept significant changes in their eating habits for the rest of their lives.

Contraindications: The LAP-BAND® System is not recommended for non-adult patients, patients with conditions that may make them poor surgical candidates or increase the risk of poor results (e.g., inflammatory or cardiopulmonary diseases, GI conditions, symptoms or family history of autoimmune disease, cirrhosis), who are unwilling or unable to comply with the required dietary restrictions, who have alcohol or drug addictions, or who currently are or may be pregnant.

Warnings: The LAP-BAND® System is a long-term implant. Explant and replacement surgery may be required. Patients who become pregnant or severely ill, or who require more extensive nutrition may require deflation of their bands. Anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin, should be used with caution and may contribute to an increased risk of band erosion.

Adverse Events: Placement of the LAP-BAND® System is major surgery and, as with any surgery, death can occur. Possible complications include the risks associated with the medications and methods used during surgery, the risks associated with any surgical procedure, and the patient’s ability to tolerate a foreign object implanted in the body. Band slippage, erosion and deflation, reflux, obstruction of the stomach, dilation of the esophagus, infection, or nausea and vomiting may occur. Reoperation may be required. Rapid weight loss may result in complications that may require additional surgery. Deflation of the band may alleviate excessively rapid weight loss or esophageal dilation.
