LAP Band

stomach lap band

The Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band is a less commonly performed bariatric procedure. It is considered a fairly safe and simple operation. Weight loss tends to be more variable compared to the other surgeries available. However, dedicated patients can do very well with this tool. One drawback is the fairly high reoperation rate of approximately 30%.
