It would be difficult to find a surgeon more experienced with the LAP-BAND than Dr. Simpson.   The Lap-band's unique advantages are that it is adjustable, reversible, and it does not surgically alter your stomach or intestines.  But, like all weight loss surgeries the Lap-band imposes lifestyle changes that some people need help with.  To learn a new lifestyle, means you have to understand how to use the band.  Dr. Simpson's patients will tell you they have never seen a more accessible doctor.

Lap-band weight loss surgeon that takes care of patients instead of playing golf

Dr. Simpson loves golf, but he doesn't play anywhere near as much as he would like to.  A lot of the time when a successful doctor might be playing golf Terry is doing the thing that means most to him...taking care of his patients.  You see, Dr. Simpson doesn't leave anything to chance when it comes to his patients.  He personally leads patient support groups.  It's not that he doesn't trust his capable support staff.  He wants to be there first hand to learn from his patients.  In addition to his exhaustive training and study, he has expanded his knowledge by learning how to use the Laparoscopic band from the people that count most...his patients.  Dr. Simpson is one of the most experienced Lap-band surgeons in Arizona.  He has learned more about the surgery and delivers more personal support than most doctors.  Equally as important as the knowledge he holds is his extensive work to record it and make it available in tools for his patients.

Bariatric surgeon Dr. Terry Simpson wrote THE manual for Lap-band surgery support

Great weight loss support programs are the result of experience, research, and record.  To quote one of Dr. Simpson's patients, " I researched a lot of weight loss doctors, but I chose Dr. Simpson because of the combination of his experience, dedication, accessibility, as well as his sense of humor."  His extraordinary quality is how he records information for use by his patients and all weight loss surgery patients worldwide.  Terry has created the manual for losing weight with the Lap-band.  Dr. Simpson's patients receive a copy of the manual for Lap-band surgery.  This manual for new life outlines in one source what a weight loss surgery patient must do to succeed using Lap-band surgery (or any other weight loss surgery).  Lap-band surgery changes your lifestyle and it is most important to understand these changes and learn how to work with this amazing tool.  Dr. Simpson's manual for life with the Lap-band, "Getting to Goal and Staying There" is one proof of his knowledge.  It is an easy to understand workbook all weight loss surgery patients can use to know what to do on a daily step-by-step basis and succeed with weight loss surgery.

Terry Simpson M.D. wrote the book about weight loss surgery too...it's very funny

Dr. Simpson's great sense of humor is expressed in many of the books he has written.  We are not talking about boring reading here.  His writing is humorous and fun.  The information he delivers can be important to people.  A good example is your choice in surgery.  Before getting weight loss surgery, you should understand the surgeries that are available.  When you make your choice, you should understand why because many surgeries permanently alter your digestive system and you must live with your choice for the rest of your life.  Dr. Simpson did bypass surgery for a long time before the Lap-band was available.  His book "Weight Loss Surgery a Lighter Look…at a Heavy Subject" explains every weight loss surgery.  It explains all of your choices, every preparation and everyone you'll be exposed to.  It is a great source of knowledge that is full of Terry's trademark sense of humor.  It takes the guesswork out of your choice of surgery and educates you so you know what you are doing.

This Lap-band weight loss doctor is more available to his patients when they need him

You don't have to read a book to receive Dr. Terry Simpson's knowledge.  It is available anytime online.  It's important to the doctor that he is not trying to sell surgery.  He is explaining choices by providing information as short and simple or as in-depth as an individual might need.  When you are at home at night after work relaxing with your family, look at the clock at 7:00 or 8:00 PM (or later).  Realize Dr. Simpson is frequently working at that time with a support group of his patients.  He has done so for many many years.  Not only is his knowledge available at any time, so is he.  Every patient receives  email access directly to the doctor...not an employee, not an email answering system...but direct access to the doctor himself.  If he's not sleeping or in surgery, he tries to respond immediately when you need him.
