The lab band is a device that restricts the stomach and causes weight loss. It is an alternative and less permanent surgery to gastric bypass. The lap band is adjustable and is installed laparoscopically. It is usually an option for obese people with at least a BMI of 40 or greater. Some patients with lower BMI can get the lap band if they have other conditions that could be improved by weight loss such as GERD, diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, etc.
