The Lap-Band is a silicone band filled with saline that is wrapped around the upper part of the stomach in a 30-minute outpatient surgical procedure. It is adjustable and can be tightened or loosened as needed, and can be easily removed without any permanent changes to the patient’s anatomy. It does not involve any cutting or stapling of the stomach.

Gastric Sleeve/Sleeve Gastrectomy in Rancho Cucamonga
Sleeve Gastrectomy in Rancho Cucamonga involves a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure during which the stomach is reduced to approximately the size of a banana. This decreases the stomach volume significantly and reduces the number of calories the patient can take in during each meal. In addition, during this procedure, a part of the stomach that is producing large quantities of a hunger hormone called Ghrelin is removed. This results in a tremendous reduction in the level of hunger that patients experience, allowing them to limit the amount of food and calories that they consume. Such reduction in appetite and calorie consumption in combination with exercise enables patients to achieve significant and lasting weight loss.
