Gastric Lap-Band

Morbid obesity is an illness that has multiple associated medical diseases and decreases life expectancy. Many of these diseases can be reverted with a significant weight loss in a medium to longer term. It has been proved that most people with morbid obesity that diet, exercise and take supervised medication have a high failure rate and that bariatric surgery is the most effective way to achieve a significant weight loss in the long term and increase life expectancy for these types of patients.

Description

The gastric Lapland is a devise approved by the FDA since the year of 2001, adjustable and reversible. The medical device is surgically implanted, it is a silicone ring placed around the upper part of the stomach.

Method

Minimally invasive approach. The surgeon performs it through laparoscopic technique (small incisions in the abdominal wall, through them a camera, scissors and other small instruments are inserted to allow manipulation through the abdominal wall without having to make an open incision) without a doubt this technique allows a very short and painless recovery. The Lapland is placed around the upper part of the stomach to create a new bag, a smaller stomach is created that will limit and control the amount of food you eat.
