In addition to performing gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, and lap band surgeries, Dr. Shillingford, MD, PA, is also renowned for his skills in performing laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, including hernia surgery. Many bariatric patients are at a higher risk of hernias, largely due to a history of obesity.
Aldi, a recent addition to the local grocery industry, has a new feature: grocery delivery at home. It’s called Instacart and it is available in the Boca Raton and surrounding areas, which are frequently where Dr. Shillingford’s gastric sleeve, gastric bypass, lap band, and laparoscopic surgery patients live.
One minute can be a good goal for a non-runner to achieve. When on a walk, set a timer on your phone and begin running when you hit the ‘start’ button. Run like you’re trying to catch something or someone. It’s OK if have a hard time making it the full minute. Just keep trying every day for one minute, and you will be able to do it. Then, you could try adding a second minute later in your walk or doubling your running time for a two-minute interval. A second minute, or even third, does seem to increase the benefit to your bone health. Plus, it burns a few more calories that can contribute to weight loss.
