DOC­TOR Kevin Dolan of­fers pa­tients pre­mium holis­tic care to sup­port them in their weight loss jour­ney.

La­paro­scopic Ad­justable Gas­tric Band­ing, com­monly re­ferred to as Lap Band surgery, is a type of min­i­mally in­va­sive weight loss surgery that in­volves wrap­ping a band around a part of the stom­ach to re­duce its size and limit the ca­pac­ity of food in­take, giv­ing a feel­ing of full­ness.The band used for the surgery is an ad­justable, in­flat­able sil­i­cone ring which is placed around the stom­ach to di­vide it into two parts: a small up­per pouch and a larger lower pouch.

Gas­tric band surgery is a re­stric­tive weight loss surgery and does not in­volve cut­ting or sta­pling of the stom­ach as do other bariatric surg­eries.
