Adjustable Lap-Band

  1. Bariatric Procedures
image description

During this procedure, the LAP-BAND® is placed around the uppermost part of the stomach, dividing it into two parts: a small upper pouch and a lower stomach.

The upper pouch can hold only about 4 ounces (1/2 cup) of food. As a result, you eat less food at one time, feeling satisfied longer. It is placed under general anesthesia and a Laparoscopic surgery, which makes recovery time shorter than any open surgery procedure.


The main features from this procedure are:

  • Least invasive surgical option
  • Low risk of nutritional deficiencies
  • No “dumping syndrome” related to dietary intake restrictions
  • Adjustable
  • Reversible “Removable at any time.” Stomach and other anatomy are generally restored to their original forms and functions
  • Fewer Risks and Side Effects
  • Laparoscopic
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Surgical time: 30 to 40 Minutes
