Alvarado Surgical Weight-Loss Program

If you or someone you know is struggling with severe obesity (a BMI of 35 or more) and suffering from related health conditions, the Alvarado Surgical Weight-Loss Program can help. In February 2011, the FDA lowered the weight requirements for patients seeking Lap-Band surgery. Now, the gastric-banding device is approved for use on patients that are generally more than 50 pounds overweight, which is approximately 30% of the U.S. adult population.
