With the adjustable Lap-Band®, patients looking for weight-loss help can take control of their lives. The gastric band is placed around the upper portion of the stomach, reducing its capacity, limiting the amount of food you can eat, and promoting your feeling of fullness. Performed laparoscopically, the procedure is minimally invasive, allowing patients to return home the same day and recover more quickly than other bariatric procedures. If you’re looking for a safe and effective weight-loss solution, the Lap-Band procedure is available via several surgeons near Elmwood Park.
The practice has performed 100+ LAP-BAND® Procedures over the last three years.
The practice has performed 250+ LAP-BAND® Procedures over the last three years.
Re-Engagement Aftercare: The practice will accept any patient that already has the LAP-BAND® and needs aftercare and adjustment. This surgeon won’t remove your LAP-BAND® unnecessarily.
