Laparoscopic Banding, Fills & Adjustments
When Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery started to gain traction nationally, Laparoscopic Gastric Band Surgery was the standard. The procedure was done by placing a surgical band around the patient’s stomach in order to curb appetite. Since then, we’ve come a long way in terms of new technology and advancements in Bariatric Surgery.
While we still serve the needs of patients with laparoscopic bands, we no longer perform this procedure. In recent years, the Gastric Bypass and Gastric Sleeve have proven to be superior procedures for long term weight loss and are the surgical options we feel best meet the needs of our patients.
If you currently have a laparoscopic band in place and need assistance with band 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 should also be 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. The Bariatric Center of Kansas City 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 913.677.6319 for more information.
