Risk
The LAP-BAND® procedure is the safest weight loss surgery method.  Every surgical procedure, however,  has general risks, as well as specific risks.  The decision to proceed with weight loss surgery needs to be evaluated against overall risk.  Our extensive and comprehensive patient screening process is designed to determine a patient's suitability for the LAP-BAND® procedure.  Upon completion of this process a personal meeting with the doctor will be arranged to discuss your suitability for the procedure and the risks.
