What Are the Benefits of the LAP-BAND System?


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

It is adjustable and reversible and has a lower severe complication rate perioperatively and a lower mean short-term mortality rate compared with gastric bypass.

In fact, the LAP-BAND® System has a mortality rate of 0.05 percent, approximately 1/10 the mortality rate of gastric bypass.
