Lap Band Revision Surgery, Fulshear TX
The lap band or gastric band surgery is a minimally invasive surgery described as an adjustable silicone band placed around the upper portion of the stomach with the goal of restricting portions. The simplicity of this concept was an attractive feature and contributed to the rapid rise in popularity in the early part of the decade. However, about 50 percent of lap band patients require revision surgery after five years including removal. As a result, the lap band has drastically diminished in popularity and now has been surpassed by the sleeve gastrectomy due to its predictable higher success rate and minimal long term complication rate.
Dr. Bonnor is a board-certified bariatric surgeon with expertise in the field of weight loss surgery offering advanced techniques in lap band revision procedures.
