Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band Patient Educational Video

The Laparoscopic Gastric Band or Lap Band® is a far less invasive procedure than traditional bariatric surgeries, and is reversible and carries with it fewer risks and dangers of complications.

Although it is far less popular as a technique for weight management in the US than the Gastric Bypass, in many parts of the world it is the standard operating procedure.

How It Works

The technique is a restrictive one, in that it restricts the amount of food intake, while also slowing down the speed at which food can pass from the stomach to the intestines.

Using laparoscopic techniques (or keyhole surgery), a band is fitted to the upper part of the stomach, creating a pouch.

The band can be inflated or deflated using saline solution, via a port under the patient’s skin. The fact that the band can adjusted without further surgery is one of its definite benefits, although you must return to a bariatric surgeon for adjustments to take place.

Benefits of This Approach

It is almost always the case that the less surgical intervention, the less risk.

This is certainly the case with the Gastric Band.

Since the procedure doesn’t involve the removal of any of your stomach, nor any bypassing or stapling, the procedure is much safer, and less traumatic to your body.

Should there be a need to remove the band in the future, this can be done, with the patient’s stomach generally returning to its previous form.

Disadvantages

The Banding approach does have its critics, who will point out that weight loss is not achieved as quickly as with the Gastric Bypass.

This is true, but the difference does often tend to balance out over time, and we believe that the least invasive operation that will serve its purpose is generally the best option for the patient.
