Brian Lane, M.D., F.AC.S.
Dr. Lane is dedicated to his craft and helping people save themselves from the debilitating and life-threatening disease of obesity. From my first consultation with Dr. Lane I understood how much he cared about his work. He is an expert in laparoscopic as well as high-risk surgical procedures and is able to perform many more types of bariatric surgeries than most weight-loss surgeons. Dr. Lane took every precaution possible to ensure that I was able to undergo a successful surgery. Dr. Lane’s care has been beyond what I ever expected. Dr. Lane has always made himself available for anything I need. I, quite literally, put my life in his hands, did so without hesitation, and would do so again. I am currently 6 days out from surgery and don't even feel like I had anything done. I can't believe how great it has been.

In July 08 I decided to talk to the doctor about weight lose surgery. After watching my mom go through her DS and her success I thought it was finally time to help myself. I have tried so many things to lose weight and being a single mom with 2 kids it makes it hard to find time for me. So the journey began, my PCP agreed that it would help me and he suggested a lapband. Well after reading A LOT and talking to my mom about it, we both agreed not to do that! But it was enough for a referral to Dr. Lane. After meeting with Amy in his office and talking about all the surgeries available I decided on the VSG.
In the next several months I got all the blood work, ekg, chest xray, medical history and everything together. Finally about 3 weeks ago everything was submitted to insurance. I was sure they would deny it due to a terrible lack of medical history and not seeing a dietician. To my surprise they didn't! I had included a letter to insurance stating why I wanted this and how important it was to me. My oldest son is diabetic so really I have been meeting with a dietician for 6 years or so. They said it was enough. Great News!
Friday (Halloween) I had my final appointment with Dr. Lane and anesthesia so everything is set for Nov. 19th. I am excited and terrified! Friday all the nurses were busy so Tuesday I am suppose to get my call for information on my liquid diet to start on Wednesday.
