F I T 2 0 1 8 - 2 0 1 9 1 7 Special Advertising Section Leigh Clark recharts the course of her life with help from Louisville Surgical Associates A nearly 300-lb nurse working in cardiac care, Leigh Clark saw where life was headed: "I could see every day in my patients what would happen if I didn't take care of my health." Leigh had been thinking about the LAP- BAND® surgery at Louisville Surgical Associates for a while. She put off attending the required in-person seminar, but signed up right away when an online version became available. Through the pre-op education, Leigh learned about the post-op support she knew she'd need to achieve long-term success. Leigh had the surgery in December 2013. Within a year she'd lost 130 lbs. Her husband was a great support and together they joined a gym. "I was the heaviest person there," Leigh recalls. She started walking, slowly, on the treadmill and eventually moved to the elliptical, triathlons and, eventually, an Ironman competition. The LAP-BAND® System is reported to be the least invasive, safest and the only adjustable and reversible surgical weight loss option available in the United States. It helps achieve sustained weight loss by placing an adjustable band around the upper part of the stomach to reduce its capacity.
