  • Gender
I've just made the final arraignemnts for surgery in Mexico with Dr. Rumbaut. He was trained by Dr. Favretti (in Italy) who was part of the team that developed and standardized laporoscopic surgery for gastric banding. Dr. Rumbaut also is a Lap Band patiend HIMSELF! It was his training & experience and the the price that led me to him.
Surgery with Dr. Favretti was in option while I'm in Italy for work next summer, but I decided my Italian summer would be much improved if I got the banding NOW.
So to Mexico I go!
I get banded the frist week of August and I CAN'T WAIT for this journey to begin!!!
