The LAP-BAND AP® Adjustable Gastric Banding System is designed to induce weight loss in severely obese patients by limiting food consumption. No cutting or stapling of the stomach is required, and there is no bypassing of portions of the stomach or intestines.

The LAP-BAND AP® is constructed with OMNIFORM™ Design and is the latest advance in laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding for the treatment of morbid obesity.

Weight loss associated with the LAP-BAND® System has been shown to improve or lead to remission of type 2 diabetes in patients with BMI greater than or equal to 35.
