Surgical Weight Loss

LAP-BAND® Adjustable Gastric Banding Surgery

LAP-BAND® Surgery is an option for those wanting to lose a significant amount of weight and to maintain this weight loss. During this laparoscopic surgery, an adjustable, silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach. Once in place, the band is inflated with saline through a small port, creating a small stomach pouch that limits food consumption and creates a feeling of fullness. The band is adjustable to your needs and can be tightened or loosened over time to change the amount of food restriction. There is no stomach cutting, stapling, or re-routing.

Free Information seminars are scheduled monthly at the Weight Management Center.  To register for an upcoming seminar, please call the Mercer Health Weight Management Center at 419-678-THIN (8446).

At the seminar, a patient registration packet must be completed. Call the Weight Management Center for your packet, or you can print it here (Weight Management Patient Packet).

By considering the option to undergo weight loss surgery, you have taken the first step necessary to change your health…and your life.  To learn more information about LAP-BAND® surgery, click here.  LAP-BAND® is a registered trademark of Allergan, Inc.

LAP-BAND® surgery can be the step to help you succeed at losing and maintaining weight loss where other programs have failed.  Mercer Health Weight Management Center has a comprehensive program and a team of dedicated staff to guide you through the entire process.
