Gastric Band Benefits and Risks
An informed decision to cure obesity with surgical treatment comes through a careful consideration of the advantages and potential risks and complications.
oBand is not only about shedding those extra kilos to get to your ideal body shape and weight. It is a long-term commitment to get leaner and fitter in all aspects of your life, which includes improvements in diet, exercise routine and healthier habits.
LAP-BAND, since it is performed by laparoscopy, is minimally invasive and thus safe. The outpatient envirionment for the surgery means you enjoy a shorter hospital stay, faster healing and minimum risk of complications.
Take a look at significant health benefits you enjoy in the initial years after LAP-BAND:
