Schmitt and his partner, Dr. Les Miles, are Alabama’s leading bariatric surgeons having placed over 1,000 Gastric Bands. They report their average patient loses half of their excess weight after this outpatient procedure. They were the first surgeons in Alabama to use Gastric Bands and are now the first to place one using this new technique. Dr. Schmitt says, “Our patients look great after surgery, and now they look even better with fewer scars.”
