Lakeview Surgery Centre offers Laproscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding (LAP-BAND® System), a safe and effective solution for obesity. To date, there have been more than 300,000 LAP-BAND® System procedures performed worldwide.
If you are seriously overweight and diets and exercise simply aren’t working for you, the LAP-BAND® System can help. The minimally invasive procedure places an adjustable band around your stomach. Quite simply, this makes your stomach smaller and you eat less. You lose weight safely and permanently.
The LAP-BAND® System is the least invasive surgical option for weight loss. No cutting or stapling means less pain and a shorter recovery time, with minimal scarring. The band is intended to be permanent, but it can be safely removed, if needed, and your stomach will return to its original form and function.
A recent article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal recommends weight loss surgery as an acceptable option for individuals for whom all other conventional weight loss methods have failed. The LAP-BAND® System is an excellent option for effective long-term weight loss.
Our integrated approach for the treatment of obesity combines a thorough assessment, the LAP-BAND® System procedure, and a comprehensive aftercare program. Our highly-qualified doctors will do their best to make you feel comfortable, and will treat you with the utmost care and respect throughout the process.
