REALIZE® Band Surgery

REALIZE gastric bandThe REALIZE® adjustable gastric band was approved by the FDA and became available in the United stated in 2007.  Like all adjustable gastric bands, this band is a restrictive weight loss device that is attached around the upper portion of the stomach.

Although this type of gastric band is one bariatric surgical option, Dr. Cywes uses only the LAP-BAND® system for gastric banding in his practice. This is because he has seen much better results with the LAP-BAND® system versus the REALIZE® adjustable gastric band.

If you currently have a REALIZE® adjustable gastric band, and are experiencing problems, Dr. Cywes can perform surgical revision of your band to address these problems.
