Dr. Ken Wong has just recently removed his 50th lap band, since opening his surgery practice in 2008. Failed lap bands are becoming increasingly more common and are the main cause for removal. Approximately 20,000 lap bands are being inserted into Australians each year since 2003.
At Central Coast Weight Loss and Minimally Invasive Surgery, Dr. Wong and his colleagues spend a large part of their time removing failed lap bands and then performing a gastric sleeve three months later. Another option available to people, who might not be suitable for a sleeve gastrectomy , would be gastric bypass surgery.
All theses options available instead of lap band surgery can be discussed privately and confidentially with Dr. Wong and his team. Contact Central Coast Weight Loss today for more information and let us help you with your weight loss decision.
