GASTRIC BANDING WAS SHOWN TO BE SAFER THAN SLEEVE GASTRECTOMY
The original alternative to more invasive gastric bypass surgery — the LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System has the experience, technology, and history of proven success to help you reach your weight loss goals for the long-term.
If you are at least 30 pounds overweight, with a BMI of at least 30 kg/m2 and one or more obesity related comorbid conditions, you should know: the LAP-BAND® System may be able to help you lose weight — helping you to avoid weight-related health risks, and enjoy a more active lifestyle.
How it works
Safely and effectively, the revolutionary yet simple technology behind the LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System reduces the amount of food that your stomach can hold at one time. This helps you gradually lose weight and keep it off. So you can live a healthier life — for your children, your family, and yourself.
