Lap-Band® surgery is a bariatric weight loss gastric banding procedure that is safe, effective, and provides long term results for obese and morbidly obese patients. 

This type of surgical treatment is becoming the most popular weight loss surgery. Gastric banding surgery will help you to lose unwanted weight safely and consistently over time. The Lap Band program at our office has been established to provide you with on-going quality health care to ensure weight loss success and improved health.  In order to achieve and maintain successful results, patients must be committed to adhere to and comply with all pre operative and post operative directions of their individually customed weight loss program established by our renowned medical, surgical, and behavioral health care team.   

Preparing for lap band surgery is a critical aspect of your success. It is important to understand the health consequences of morbid obesity and how weight loss surgery effects common ailments such as high blood pressure, depression, cholesterol, type 2 diabetes sleep apnea, joint and other pain disorders, and cardiovascular disease. To qualify for LAP BAND® surgery, patients must have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 40, or a BMI of 35 with any of the above listed common ailments. 

Bariatric gastric banding surgery should only be employed after several failed attempts at weight loss leading to improved health.  The LAP BAND® is the most advanced adjustable gastric banding system currently available.

I lost the 50 pounds I had been battling since I had my two children and I have kept it off for six years. Compared to work required by constant dieting, I found LAP-BAND® to be a less stressful way to get healthy and down to a weight that makes me feel comfortable and confident on the air and in my personal life."
