Pacific Laparoscopic located in San Francisco, California has re-launched their newly comprehensive website at paclap.com. The new website has information on all of the procedures available for weight loss, including the less invasive duodenal switch procedure. Dr. Rabkin, who is the Director, has over 30 years experience doing bariatric surgery.
The duodenal switch procedure reroutes the intestines, in a process that separates the food stream from the digestive enzymes. As a result, the body does not absorb all of the ingested food. This procedureSurg, like many of the weight loss surgeries, combats obesity resulting in lowering blood pressure, getting rid of diabetes in many cases, and even stopping sleep apnea.
Psychosocial comorbidities can also change dramatically. Those who lose weight successfully experience improvement in quality of life. Not only is their self image elevated, others start to view them differently, too. It is widely known that overweight people are occasionally passed over for promotions on the job due to how they look. Once difficult physical tasks can become easy and an overall healthy feeling returns.
Other People’s Success Stories Help Motivate Patients to Change Their Own Lives
Dr. John M. Rabkin, Director of Pacific Laparoscopic is excited about the new website. He believes it is aesthetically pleasing as well as easy to navigate. His main objective was to have a website that was not only easy to use, but one that offered helpful information about bariatric surgeries for people in the Bay Area.
Dr. Rabkin’s goal in adding patient success stories to the website was to motivate others to change their lives as well as to socially reward people who made a commitment to their own lives and followed through. The success stories include pictures of before and after surgery, and let the reader know what type of surgery was done. Dr. Rabkin also believes that seeing a person who has made the transformation helps future patients to relate, and can give them a sense of hope.
Pacific Laparoscopic in San Francisco is One of Few to Offer Duodenal Switch Procedure in U.S.
Pacific Laparoscopic offer several types of weight loss surgery: vertical gastrectomy, revisional surgery, and duodenal switch procedure. Since Pacific Laparoscopic is one of only a few places in the U.S. to offer the duodenal switch procedure, many people fly to their location to have it done. Because of the number of patients traveling to San Francisco, the website lists travel information including accommodation and transportation options.
Other information accessible through the website is a list of informational seminars for people to learn more about morbid obesity and bariatric surgery options. Dr. Rabkin believes that bariatric surgery has the ability to change people’s lives. That’s why the goal of Pacific Laparoscopic is to help as many people as they can.
For anyone who is interested in learning more and would like to speak to someone in person, the website lists dates on a calendar for seminars which are held in California, Oregon, Washington, and Illinois.
