Benefits of LAP-BAND® System Surgery

  • Least invasive bariatric surgical procedure
  • No cutting or rerouting of the intestines
  • Lowest mortality rate of all bariatric operations
  • Low risk of nutritional deficiencies
  • Adjustability and reversibility
  • Generally good weight maintenance in compliant patients

The LAP-BAND® System requires frequent follow up because patients require adjustments of the band. This is how the band restricts food intake. Patients are advised to follow up regularly for their band adjustments. Moreover, regular follow up visits often result in a better weight loss outcome. It is common for patients to require eight or more adjustments during the first year after the band is placed.

The LAP-BAND® System and You

The LAP-BAND® System is a simple yet innovative tool to help you achieve a healthier, happier life. However, your motivation and commitment to adopt a new lifestyle are extremely important for long term weight loss. New eating habits must be adopted and exercise is an equally important component of a changed lifestyle. Adequate exercise will not only help you in the battle against excess weight, but it will also benefit your general health and well-being.

Significant Health Risks of Extreme Obesity

Morbid obesity is a significant risk to life. It leads to life-threatening conditions such as:

  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes
  • gallbladder disease
  • gynecologic cancer
  • high blood lipids
  • arthritis
  • sleep apnea syndrome
  • premature death
Surgical Treatment of Morbid Obesity

Due to the high incidence of failure of non-operative methods of weight control in the morbidly obese, surgery is considered an ideal method of treatment.
