"As an Outpatient Dietitian I specialize in Diabetes Education and Weight Management"
Nutrition and food choices are vital components of the LAP-BAND® bariatric program and our registered dieticians work with the patients to teach and guide them towards proper nutrition. LAP-BAND® patients eat smaller amounts of food so it is the goal of nutrition services to educate patients to eat proper, nutritious foods to fill the pouch and maintain satiety (satisfaction). Extensive time is spent teaching you about your new LAP-BAND® diet.
