LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System

 

The LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System was designed to help you lose excess body weight. It uses a process called laparoscopic banding. This process is the least invasive way to use surgery to reduce the amount of food your stomach can hold. The LAP-BAND® System is an innovative procedure using an adjustable surgical band to reduce stomach size. It is adjustable and reversible and it requires a minimum of recovery time.
