LAP-BAND® Surgery

The LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System is a simple yet advanced gastric banding system that helps you gradually lose and control your weight by reducing the amount of food that your stomach can hold at one time. If you've been thinking about weight loss surgery as a tool in losing your excess weight, and maintaining your ongoing health goals, you can use the guideline below to determine if the LAP-BAND® System is the right option for you.

You may be able to benefit from the LAP-BAND® System if:

  • You are at least 18 years old
  • You are at least 100 pounds overweight or your BMI is 40 or higher (or at least 35 if you have one or more comorbidities - weight-related health conditions - such as type 2 diabetes)

    You can lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle. If more conservative weight reduction alternatives have not worked for you, consider the LAP-BAND® System for weight loss. The LAP-BAND® System is a safe and effective weight loss tool that allows you to lose your excess weight and maintain your healthy lifestyle goals. Attend one of our free educational seminars to find out if the LAP-BAND® System is right for you.
