Las Vegas Lap Band and Gastric Bypass Specialist
Over the years, Dr. Umbach has been recognized as a foremost Las Vegas gastric bypass and Lap Band surgeon.

He performs most of the weight loss procedures laparoscopically (by using thin surgical instruments inserted through small incisions in the abdominal wall). This approach significantly reduces the risk of infection and promotes faster recovery.

In addition, Avandia has been shown to cause heart attacks and other cardiovascular complications.
