Lap Band

When considering a weight loss surgery, besides considering what your insurance will cover, it is a good idea to decide on the surgery that is best for you. The traditional weight loss surgery involves cutting the patient open and taking out a piece of their stomach and bypassing the rest. The name of the surgery is gastric bypass for that very reason. This is not the right procedure for everyone. The less invasive procedure is the lap band. This surgery involves the surgeon making cuts to get the probe and the band itself into the stomach. The lap band is used to pinch part of the stomach and limit food intake. More info: Lap Band Fort Worth
