Lap Band Surgery
If you are seriously overweight and diets and exercise simply aren’t working for you, the Lap Band bariatric surgery can help. The minimally invasive procedure involves placing an adjustable band around your stomach to make it smaller, so you eat less, safely lose weight and keep it off.
Losing weight with the Lap Band System can improve your health, reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, hypertension and other serious conditions, and significantly improve your quality of life. It’s a proven, reliable procedure that has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the world lead healthier, happier lives.
Allergen’s Lap-Band is the only gastric banding device to be approved for remission of Type 2 Diabetes. Clinical studies demonstrate that 73% of patients achieve remission from Type 2 Diabetes following the Lap Band surgery. Evidence from clinical studies show that patients who lost weight with the Lap Band System were over five times more likely to achieve remission of Type 2 Diabetes than those receiving conventional diabetes therapy. 1
