During the lap band procedure, a band is placed on the upper portion of the stomach, limiting the patient’s intake of food and suppressing hunger.  The lap band does not interfere with normal digestion.  Because no staples or cutting takes place on the stomach, this surgery is completely reversible.  With minimal discomfort during and after the procedure, the lap band is a popular choice.
