Today, we announced that Dr. Thomas Hitchcock has joined Weight Loss Surgical Center as our fourth surgeon on our team specializing in laparoscopic adjustable gastric band procedures to help patients lose weight and keep it off.
Dr. Thomas Hitchcock is now performing LAP-BAND® Surgeries and follow-up care only at Weight Loss Surgical Center.
“Weight Loss Surgical Center is the only surgery practice in the Kansas City area that is currently specializing exclusively in adjustable gastric band surgery for weight loss,” said Dr. Hitchcock. "I believe that adjustable gastric bands are still the safest, most effective and the healthiest option over the long term.”
Dr. Hitchcock was involved with a variety of surgical procedures developed for weight loss through the years. He spent 3 decades helping people suffering from morbid obesity and has worked specifically with adjustable gastric band patients since 2004.
Dr. Hitchcock joins Dr. Lawrence Drahota, Dr. Scott Ellison and Dr. Stanley Augustin with privileges to perform weight loss surgery for us at Blue Valley Hospital.
We have clinics in Overland Park, Topeka and Wichita, Kan.; Springfield, St. Peters, Independence and Kansas City, Mo.; West Des Moines and Council Bluffs, Iowa; and Omaha, Neb., for initial consultations and long-term post-operative follow-up care.
