Significant Long Term Weight Loss
The LAP-BAND® System, a minimally invasive procedure that offers significant and long-lasting weight loss, is the first adjustable medical device approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for individualized weight loss for obese patients1 (BMI varies by country) with an obesity-related comorbidity.** The system is fully adjustable, allowing you to help patients meet their long-term weight loss goals through a less invasive laparoscopic approach.
In a recent study1, patients with the LAP-BAND® System showed sustained long term weight loss over the 5 year period with an average percent weight loss at five years of 15.9, corresponding with 62.7% excess weight loss (EWL). The study also showed a significant improvement in co-morbidities.
