Our approach to patient care has resulted in zero mortality, zero complications and maximum customer satisfaction. We are the only authorized outpatient facility in Miami Dade for Lap Band Surgery. LAP BAND has been used by bariatric surgeons worldwide to treat obesity. This procedure works similar to an hourglass, it is placed around the upper stomach, dividing it into two parts, to help food pass slower and reduce your intake, producing satiety (fullness).
LAP BAND is a system that is minimally invasive, accurate, adjustable, reversible, fast and has a wide safety margin.
Although it is a surgical treatment that is performed by laparoscopic surgery it involves low risk and provides excellent results in patients who need the treatment. The technology incorporated in this system allows the surgeon to adjust the bariatric device according to the evolution of the patient and without the need for further surgery. Thus, weight reduction is constant, but with a speed controlled properly.
Another advantage of this procedure is that it is reversible, meaning that the patient can remove the band after changing their lifestyle. Patients can reduce up to 60% of overweight in two years, provided they maintain a low calorie diet and exercise regularly.
