Removal surgeon in Chicago



Recommended Posts

Brief introduction: got my lap band in 2002. Lost about 60 pounds initially, then started eating around the band. In the intervening years I’ve been up and down, have done WW, lo carb, etc. I just haven’t “used” the band. Last adjustment was maybe 10 years ago. I remember my surgeon’s name but not much else. .I’m now close to my pre-band weight and realizing that the gerd and heartburn, vomiting and waking up every night with reflux is enough. I want the band pit.

Has anyone here had their lap band removed in Chicago? Any suggestions for surgeons? Any group practices that are know to be successful?

I accept full responsibility for the failure of my band for weight loss...I didn’t follow the rules. But now I’d like it out. Thank you.

I got my sleeve through Stroger and they were taking out a few people’s band to convert them to a sleeve.

If you've got issues with gerd and reflux DO NOT go with the sleeve... Bypass is your best option
