Bariatric surgery is the blanket term for a number of increasingly common surgical procedures for morbidly obese patients that work by restricting the capacity of the digestive system and reducing the patient’s appetite. Many procedures, such as the lap band, reduce the size of the stomach while others, such as the gastric bypass, lower the digestive system’s ability to absorb calories and other nutrients. While immensely helpful to many patients, these are procedures that should never be undertaken without a great deal of thought.

Unlike traditional gastric bypass surgery, the lap band does not permanently reduce the size of the stomach and does not bypass the tradition digestive route. The other benefits to lap band surgery is that it is removable, adjustable and is placed laparoscopically for minimal scarring.
