Most recently, Glasgow appeared at the request of New England Cable News to discuss surgical weight loss procedures, including the LAP-BAND® procedure and other surgical weight loss options.

In addition to the LAP-BAND, Dr. Glasgow also performs laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, also known as sleeve gastrectomy.
