100 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 10.14 lapbandofouisville.com The Face of Lap Ban d Surgery More than ten years ago, Dr. Vince Lusco and Dr. John Olsofka developed the bariatric program at Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital. Since then, they've transformed the lives of 3,300 patients through LAP-BAND® surgeries. The LAP-BAND® System is safer and less invasive than traditional weight-loss procedures and typically helps someone who is 100 pounds overweight lose 70 pounds. It helps achieve sustained weight loss by placing an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach to reduce its capacity. Who is eligible for LAP-BAND®? Patients age 18 or older who weigh at least 75 pounds over their ideal body weight. The LAP-BAND® system procedure takes about 30 minutes. It is done laparoscopically, under a general anesthetic, on an outpatient basis. Most patients require a few days to recover and resume normal activity in 1-2 weeks. Success is enhanced with the aftercare program, where patients are followed long-term by the surgeon who not only performs their procedure, but also performs all adjustments to the LAP-BAND®. Transform your life. Visit LapBandofLouisville.com to learn about upcoming free seminars or call Louisville Surgical Associates, 502.366.1090.
