Amazing Doctor, amazing results

Dr. Jay is one of the easiest Doctors to speak openly to about health and weight loss. I have had both the Lap band (2004) and then converted to the sleeve (2008) and I am so grateful to have my health back.

Staff never bothered to inform me of insurance claim status. It was a "SURPEISE" when I showed up for my visit

Lap Band Worked for me

Dr. J. performed lap band surgery on me in 2009. From the date of surgery to now, I have lost and kept off 143 lbs. and have about 15 more pounds to go to my ideal weight. This was not an easy decision, but the best thing I have done for my health. I am 65 years old, look better than I did 30 years ago and have a great deal of energy to do all the things I want to do. Lap band helped me: get rid of my snoring and the C-Pap Machine, lower my blood pressure from an average 155/93 to an average 112/77. I can buy really inexpensive clothes in smaller sizes, but I need warmer sweaters for winter in the Northwest where I now work--since my fat layer has substantially gone away. I work out and can walk wherever I want, and I fit more comfortably in all furniture including airplane seats. That is all positive, but the negative is: I cannot eat whatever I want, and I cannot eat in the quantities I used to eat. I have to think more carefully about what I cook and what I put in my mouth. Before lap band I used to eat what felt good. I am now dealing with acid reflux, but I monitor what I eat, and the reflux will be taken care of. Dr. J. told me this surgery would be a lifestyle change and it would not be easy, and it has not been, but I would absolutely have lap band surgery again with Dr. Jayaseelan as my surgeon. Food has lost its allure as a panacea for feeling good. Now feeling healthy is feeling good, and I use food to sustain energy and for nutrients. I thank Dr. Nirmal Jayaseelan for his surgeon's skills and his decisions for me as his patient.
