Take the First Step with Lap-Band Surgery at Tift Regional

Tift Regional Medical Center (TRMC) is offering a safe and effective treatment for obese adult patients who have been unsuccessful with non-surgical weight reduction alternatives.  Dr. Christopher Smith is trained and experienced in Lap-Band and Realize Adjustable Gastric Banding System procedures--safe, minimally invasive and adjustable weight loss surgeries. These gastric banding systems serve as a tool to control hunger by limiting food consumption and creating an earlier feeling of fullness without the high risk of nutritional deficiencies associated with gastric bypass.  

Dr. Smith holds a clinic at the Tift Regional Weight Loss Center, located at the TRMC West Campus. He performs surgical procedures at the TRMC Surgery Center.
