Surgical Procedures: LAP-BAND
Our practice is proud to offer LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Band surgery, a highly effective weight loss operation that has become popular throughout the United States. The procedure uses a silicone band to constrict the stomach, creating a smaller stomach pouch that strictly limits the amount of food a person can eat in one sitting. Because of this, individuals feel full more quickly. The LAP-BAND® System procedure also slows down the digestion process, which helps to curb hunger. In addition, the LAP-BAND® System can be adjusted or reversed at any time according to the needs of the patient.
