What is the LAP-BAND System?


The LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding System is the first U.S. FDA-approved adjustable gastric band for use in weight reduction. To date, this simple reversible surgically implanted device has been used in more than 300,000 procedures worldwide.

The LAP-BAND® System was approved by the FDA in June 2001 for severely obese adults with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or more or for people with a BMI of at least 30 plus at least one severe obesity-related health condition such as Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and asthma.
