In the laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding procedure, commonly known as the lap-band, a rubber-like ring containing an inflatable balloon is placed around the upper part of the stomach and affixed in place. This creates a small stomach pouch similar to the small pouch created surgically in the gastric bypass procedure. The difference is two-fold: first, the band does not completely separate the small pouch from the large pouch and, second, the band can be tightened or loosened to achieve the desired effect.
Injecting or removing fluid regulates the size of the balloon attached to the band. The balloon in the band is connected by a tube to a port, or reservoir, that is easily accessible by the surgeon in your abdominal wall. The lap band helps you achieve weight-loss through restriction, by restricting the amount of food that your stomach can hold.

Dr. Jason Moy performed by bariatric surgery last month. I did enormous study on the surgery including watching 90 hours of video on YouTube. Concerned about the surgery Dr. Jason Moy had an excellent bedside manner. He is an excellent listener and very patient. His staff is impeccable. His confidence shown in me and the procedure remedied my nerves. After surgery I was expecting some of the maladies I learned about after bariatric surgery. To my surprise and because of an excellent surgery, I had minimal pain off pain meds next day, no sore throat or other irritable symptoms. I knew I was fortunate. Fortunate to have an excellent doctor and surgeon. If you plan to change you life and go in a better direction and get bariatric surgery I would expect you would want the best surgeon and doctor available. I suggest you call Dr. Jason Moy.
