Dr. Sunil Bhoyrul is a bariatric surgeon. That means he performs weight loss surgery on patients dealing with obesity.
Most of Dr. Bhoyrul's patients have LAP-BAND surgery, with a smaller percentage receiving gastric bypass surgery.
Dr. Bhoyrul believes that for real success, it is important for patients to do more than undergo surgery, that they change their diets and begin to get some regular exercise.
He also recommends that they actively seek out better ways of handling stress. This may keep them from being tempted to go back to their old unhealthy habits.
