    i live in asia and want a band over my bypass. the most reputable hospital in asia that i know of (bumrungrad in thailand) is almost as expensive as the states and they allow no shortcuts in the process. post -op you must stay or return to thailand several times. i am looking for something more like the specialist clinics that ONLY do bariatrics at a reasonable price. please let me know if you have heard any good info on docs or hospitals. thanks!

    Why would you want a band over the sleeve? I am having my band taken out... it is just too invasive ...

    I just found this forum here. I got my sleeve done in Seoul Korea from Dr. Han and the Gangnam CHA hospital. It was a fantastic experience and am know about a year and half since my surgery and have no complaints. The cost was more than Mexico but not by too much. If you were already in Korea or NorthEast Asia I would highly recommend Dr. Han.
