Service Detail:

Service Detail More than 30% of Americans meet the criteria for  obesity , as shown by recent statistics. Obesity is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of over 30 kg/m2, and while lifestyle modification remains the first choice for treatment, bariatric surgery options are becoming more popular. One of the surgical treatments for obesity is called gastric banding, or lap band surgery.

Procedure Description:

Procedure Description This option for weight loss surgery is minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure that takes about 30 minutes to perform. An adjustable band is wrapped around the upper part of the stomach dividing it into a small upper pouch that holds about ½ cup of food, and a larger lower stomach.

How It Works:

How It Works By creating a smaller stomach pouch, it limits the amount of food that one eats at any one time. This allows you to feel full sooner and stay full longer feeling satisfied. The degree of tightness affects how much food you can eat and the length of time it takes for food to leave the stomach which allows you to stay satisfied with a small amount for a longer period of time.
