Lap-Band® Weight Loss Surgery
The Lap-Band procedure, also called adjustable gastric banding, is one of the least invasive types of weight loss surgery. Using small incisions, the surgeon places an adjustable silicone band around the upper part of the stomach to create a smaller stomach pouch. This limits the amount of food your stomach can hold, making you feel full sooner and longer.
Lap-Band surgery is an outpatient procedure requiring less than a 24-hour stay at North Kansas City Hospital.
