Lap-Band® Surgery in Kansas City

LAP-BAND® surgery (also known as Gastric Band Surgery) is a procedure that places a restrictive band around the upper part of the stomach, limiting the amount of food a person can eat. The gastric band helps one feel full with less food, leading to greater weight loss than what would be experienced without the band.

KC Bariatric, does serve the “maintenance” needs of patients with existing Gastric bands, but in recent years we have found that the Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve are superior weight loss procedures to Gastric Band Surgery.

If you are considering Lap-Band ® surgery, or any of it’s many better alternatives, please contact our office at 913.677.6319 and we will be glad to explain the benefits of all weight loss procedures, and help you with the right choice for you.

If you currently have a Gastric Band in place, and need assistance with fills or adjustments, we are available to assist you with your band needs. Just call our office at 913.677.6319 to request an appointment.

Bariatric Revision Surgery is also a consideration for patients that currently have a Gastric Band.  This involves removal of the band and converting the patient to a more optimal solution for long term weight loss. The Gastric Bypass and Sleeve Gastrectomy have both been determined to provide far superior results. KC Bariatric is a leader in Revision Surgery and available to help you with a “band to sleeve” or bypass “transition”.

If you would like more information on the revision process, please email us at or call 913.677.6319 for more information.
