Pre- Operative Liver Shrinking Diet

Patients with a Body mass index (BMI) of 45 or greater, or are at special risk due to a previous health condition, are prescribed a special diet 7 to 14 days prior to their scheduled surgery. A special diet (LSD) followed for a length of time prior to surgery, has been very effective in shrinking and firming the liver. This diet reduces the risk of potential bleeding and complications during your surgery. If you have been prescribed this special diet, it is important that you follow the instructions for the diet to improve your surgical outcome. Please Note: This diet is not recommended to all patients undergoing Lap-Band surgery, and should only be followed if prescribed to you personally by Dr. Kuri or his staff.
