Weight Loss Solutions in Rockford

Rockford, Illinois is also home to surgeons offering Lap-Band® as a solution for weight loss. The Lap-Band procedure is a minimally invasive weight-loss surgery that is unparalleled in safety, adjustability, and effectiveness. 

Patients undergoing the Lap-Band procedure receive an adjustable band, which is placed around the upper portion of the stomach. This band limits the amount of food you can eat, promoting fullness and a healthy caloric intake. Because Lap-Band is laparoscopic, it allows patients to return home the same day and recover more quickly than with other weight-loss surgeries. 

To find this safe, adjustable, and effective procedure in the Rockford area, find a list of providers below:
