Dr Christine Ren Fielding was featured on the Dr Oz show, along with Dr George Fielding. They were invited to be on the show to discuss the lap band, specifically its use in lower BMI patients. Although many associate bariatric surgery with a treatment for patients with over 100 pounds to lose, it is an appropriate option for some patients with less weight to lose – especially if those people have an obesity-related health condition such as diabetes, sleep apnea, or high blood pressure.
An article on the Dr Oz site, written by Dr George Fielding, highlights important points made during the show. You can read that article here.
