The LAP-BAND® System Surgery is the safest, least invasive and only adjustable surgical treatment for morbid obesity in the United States. It induces weight loss by reducing the capacity of the stomach, which restricts the amount of food that can be consumed. Since its clinical introduction in 1993, some 150,000 LAP-BAND® procedures have been performed around the world and over 30,000 in the U.S. alone.
The procedure involves laparoscopic techniques (using small incisions and long-shafted instruments) to implant an inflatable silicone band into the patient's abdomen. Like a wristwatch, the band is fastened around the upper stomach to create a new, tiny stomach pouch that limits and controls the amount of food the patient eats. It also creates a small outlet that slows the emptying process into the stomach and the intestines. As a result, patients experience an earlier sensation of fullness and are satisfied with smaller amounts of food. In turn, this results in weight loss.
Dr. McEwen has been performing outpatient LAP-BAND® System Surgeries since June 2005. He is the only surgeon in Indiana to have performed the LAP-BAND® System Surgery on an outpatient basis. Dr. McEwen is fully credentialed with the American Society of Bariatric Surgeons.
