More about Lap-Band Surgery

The Lap-Band is an adjustable collar placed around the upper stomach using the laparoscopic approach, which involves small incisions and a tiny camera. The laparoscopic approach reduces the surgical risks and leads to less scarring and a quicker recovery than traditional open surgery techniques. The procedure is typically completed in one hour or less.

The Lap-Band acts like an hourglass to slow the passage of food through the stomach. Small portions of food become filling and the weight loss journey begins. As you lose weight, the stomach loses weight. The Lap-Band can be periodically tightened to compensate for this and encourage further weight loss. This is accomplished through “fills or adjustments,” which are simple saline injections into the port. Each adjustment is performed in the office and takes the doctor approximately 20 seconds to complete. The easy adjustability of the gastric band enables patients more control to determine what weight range is their own personal target.

Lap-Band surgery is also completely reversible. If necessary, the Lap-Band device can be removed from your body.

Why Our Aftercare Program Works

After Lap-Band surgery, our dieticians work with all of our patients to help them re-learn how to eat healthy foods and use portion control. The program advocates regular activity regimens to accelerate weight loss, but regular workouts in a gym are unnecessary and sometimes can be a setback for those with arthritis and joint problems. We have an entire team in place to help you during this adjustment period. We will offer you constant support and resources in order to be successful and achieve the results you desire.

We can also connect you to other patients that are going through the same changes and challenges that you face in our monthly support groups. Peer-to-peer support is a powerful tool!
