Nutritional counseling is also provided as an essential component to help our patients achieve long-term success.
Boone Hospital Center’s weight loss surgery program uses a multi-disciplinary approach to assess and evaluate each patient. Dr. James Pitt, DO and Dr. Thomas Etter, DO are the surgeons who perform gastric banding at Boone Hospital Center, using the LAP-BAND® System.
Weight loss surgery is available to those that have exhausted all other measures for weight loss. To be considered for the weight loss surgery program, each patient must first attend an informational seminar.
