Success Stories

Complication ProtectionSingle Incision Lap-band Surgery
Single Incision Lap-band Surgery (SILS) means less scars and shorter healing time.  Don't believe that men don't care about scars.  Most will when they have a flat stomach.  But it's more than about scars.  It's about healing time. Fewer surgical incisions into your body means much shorter healing time and much, much less chance of infection.

The Lap-band is the least invasive weight loss surgery and now it's even better

Dr. Simpson has made Lap-band surgery even less invasive by using far fewer incisions than before...only one instead of five incisions.  That's pretty amazing.  Now Dr. Simpson can do your Lap-band surgery with only one incision when just a few weeks prior to this writing it required five.

Before SILS, laparoscopic weight loss surgery scars where already very small

Now Single Incision Lap-band Surgery requires only one incision.  What does that mean for most men?  Well, you can golf again, within weeks of the surgery.  It means that an active man can get back into his game again in much less time...quicker than any other weight loss surgery, including the older conventional five incision Lap-band surgery.

Dr. Terry Simpson's experience in Lap-band surgery results in less surgical time

Dr. Simpson does Lap-band weight loss surgery faster and with more precision than most surgeons.  The results are less surgical trauma and much shorter healing time.  Why is Doctor Simpson such a capable surgeon?  Experience pure and simple.  He is one of the most prolific Lap-band surgeons available.  In his role as a proctor for Allergan, the producer of the Lap-band, he teaches the other surgeons in Arizona how to do Lap-band surgery.
