Lap Band Removal
If you have had an adjustable gastric band placed in the past and you have weight regain or abnormal symptoms you may be a candidate for removal. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, acid reflux, pain, difficulty tolerating foods, or redness or infection of the port site.
The removal of the Band and port site is performed by making an incision of the existing port followed by laparoscopic removal of the intra-abdominal band and tubing.
If you still suffer from Morbid obesity, BMI > 35, you may be a candidate for a Sleeve Gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, or Duodenal Switch procedure. This is typically performed as a separate surgery in a delayed fashion and usage of our weight loss program as dictated by your insurance requirements.
