Sansum Clinic Bariatric Surgery Center Lap-Band Surgery

Lap Band Surgery

A newer approach is the adjustable gastric band. This is a plastic ring placed around the top of the stomach to limit the amount and rate of food consumption. Adjusting the tightness of the band is a simple office procedure, typically done four to five times in the first year. In general, there is less weight loss with this approach, but it is less invasive and possibly safer.
