How is the LAP-BAND System Procedure Performed?


The LAP-BAND® System’s inflatable band is usually placed around the top portion of the stomach laparoscopically, using "keyhole" surgery, which offers the advantages of reduced pain, length of hospital stay and recovery period.

The LAP-BAND® System procedure is considered safer and less invasive than gastric bypass, as there is no stomach cutting, stapling or intestinal re-routing.
