The original, revolutionary gastric banding system!
The LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System is an adjustable gastric band designed to help obese individuals achieve sustained long-term weight loss and has been demonstrated to lead to resolution or improvement in co-morbid conditions such as Type 2 diabetes and hypertension. It induces weight loss by reducing the stomach capacity and restricting the amount of food that can be consumed at one time, but it is unlikely that it will interfere with normal digestion and absorption of food and nutrients. The differentiating factor for the LAP-BAND® System from gastric bypass is that it does not require stomach cutting, stapling or intestinal re-routing.
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. Studies have shown that the LAP-BAND® System can help you to not only lose excess weight – steadily and consistently – but, equally importantly, maintain that weight loss over time.
