Lap Band Surgery .

Many confuse Lap Band Surgery and gastric bypass surgery. They are two different procedures; Lap Band involves the creation of a pouch in the stomach, therefore reducing its size, and its volume capacity in terms of food intake.  It is a completely reversible operation, and unlike gastric bypass, the small intestine is not touched, and the stomach is not stitched.  You can refer to this site for further information: http://www.obesitylapbandsurgery.com/tecmain.html
