Default Misleading billboard advertising lap band

And one wonders why there are so many misconceptions about how the lap band is really supposed to work and its real purpose.

EDIT: I was able to read through the blurring and found the practice responsible for this billboard. Anyone can PM me for the details.

That is absolutely ignorant and irresponsible of the advertiser. I wonder if you get free Burger King coupons with your surgery.

I've heard radio ads for a long time that are just as bad. It's so reprehensible to me that any medical practice would behave this way.
