Gastric Band Surgery is recommended when for patients who suffer from morbid obesity and have failed to lose weight with other treatment options. In addition, patients who are more likely to get pre-approved for a Roux-en-Y surgery include people with BMI of 40 or more, when the patients have been overweight for over five years or have a serious obesity-related health problem such as: high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep apnea. 

Gastric Band surgery is performed under anesthesia in a hospital operating room, where three to five incisions of one-half to two inches are made in the upper abdomen, allowing our doctor to use special tools to place a gastric band containing a small balloon around the top portion of the stomach, forming a smaller gastric pouch.

Once in place, the pouch is filled with a saline solution through an injection port, which is attached to the abdominal wall under the skin. Saline expands the band and places pressure around the outside of the stomach. This decreases the size of the passage between the pouch and the lower stomach, restricting the movement of food. Using the injection port, the amount of saline in the band can be easily adjusted to create the passage optimal for maintaining consistent weight loss.

LAP-BAND® patients heal faster, recover more quickly, experience less pain, and leave the hospital sooner than patients undergoing other weight-loss procedures.

The adjustable gastric band can be modified without additional surgery, and the procedure is fully reversible — the stomach returns to normal if it is removed. LAP-BAND® surgery involves no cutting or stapling of the stomach and no bypassing of the intestines. It does not cause malnutrition as with malabsorptive procedures and does not cause dumping syndrome as with gastric bypass surgery. High blood pressure is cured or improved in 78% of patients who lose a significant amount of weight after weight loss surgery. Along with post-surgical weight loss, our patients also see great improvement in other co-morbidities such as pain from arthritis, the discomfort of sleep apnea, and illnesses such as diabetes.
