  • I can relate to the article. I had a good experience getting a Lap band procedure done in India. Initially I was a little apprehensive but once I landed at the hospital, the experience turned out really well. The doctors were very professional and the infrastructure was impressive. I took help from folks at and they helped me arrange the treatment and stay in Goa. Its been 7 months now and I look great. I wish the doctors and the staff success. Definitely visit Goa and Kerala if you get a chance.
