Floyd Memorial Weight Management Center Offers Free Gastric Banding Seminars

September 10, 2009

The Floyd Memorial Weight Management Center, specializing in both surgical and non-surgical weight loss options, will offer free informational seminars on the RealizeÔ Personalized Gastric Banding Solution.  Presented by board-certified general surgeon Ashley Lankford, M.D., FACS, the seminars will be held one Tuesday evening and Saturday morning each month.

The minimally invasive RealizeÔ band procedure involves placing a flexible, adjustable band around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small pouch for minimal food intake.  Most patients lose approximately 50 percent of their excess weight in the first year.

Upcoming Seminars:
