LAP BAND

(Lose 50-100 lbs.)
The Lap-Band® is inserted laparoscopically using tiny skin incisions. It is placed around the top part of the stomach, essentially creating a small stomach pouch above the band, with a much smaller capacity compared to your original stomach. The band allows you to feel full after eating just a small amount of food. The food slowly passes through the band. There is a tiny port attached to the band, which is placed on the abdominal wall. It's used to inject or remove saline from the band to achieve adequate tightness. Adjustments are done in the office in under a minute.

INSURANCE vs. SELF PAY
INSURANCE vs. SELF PAY
We can give you accurate cost once we contact your insurance company for details. You should know that Dr. Mehta does not balance bill patients.  Our office manager, Lulu, is extremely knowledgable & efficient in dealing with insurance companies to get your surgery approved. If you decide to self-pay, you should find it comforting that our fees are amongst the best in Tristate, and we offer the convenience of 
0% interest financing using Care Credit® or HCS Loans®.
