The Obesity Control Center is a world leader in gastric band (lap band) surgeries and its surgeons have performed more procedures of this type than anyone else in the world. Our surgeons not only are among the most qualified in the world, they also serve as instructing doctors having trained many of the leading American surgeons in this field.


Over 20 years of experience and more than 23,000 patients is what sets us apart at OCC. We are the busiest standalone Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and this gives us a unique advantage, especially when it comes to the Lap-Band. Lap-Band (also known as a gastric band) surgery is a procedure that helps limit your food intake and makes you feel fuller with fewer amounts of food. Lap-Band surgery is an effective medical procedure that has helped countless people get over the enormous hurdle of losing weight.

For many people, losing weight isn’t as simple as starting a new diet or implementing a new exercise routine. All over the world, millions of people struggle to achieve weight loss for a number of reasons, both medical and psychological. And while the Lap-Band was one of the first innovations in gastric surgery, OCC is also a pioneer of the advanced Manga gástrica mejorada y Plicatura gástrica surgeries. We also offer revisions for those who wish to advance from a Lap-Band to another procedure.

How Does The Lap-Band Procedure Work?

los band is implanted using laparoscopic (minimally invasive) surgery while patients are under anesthesia and it is considered to be a safe and effective way to achieve and maintain a healthier weight without cutting or stapling the stomach. As patients lose weight, their band fit will change so periodic adjustments (using a saline solution in the band) keep them on track to meet their weight loss goals. The gastric band (Lap-Band) procedure is especially popular because it is designed for long-term use. As adjustable gastric banding surgery does not permanently change the anatomy of the stomach, the band can also be removed at any time if desired. At the Obesity Control Center, our Tijuana weight loss surgeons utilize the exclusive Ortiz Anti-Slip Stitch procedure, named after our lead physician who developed the technique, which ensures greater long-term success for patients.

  • A special band (LAP-BAND®/Realize® Band) is placed around the upper part of your stomach.
  • The band effectively divides your stomach into a small pouch and a larger lower stomach.
  • By creating a small pouch, your stomach is now only able to hold a limited amount of food.
  • The tightness of the band affects how much food you can eat before feeling full.

Are there any complications for lap-band?

A common occurrence for banded patients is the regurgitation of non-acidic swallowed food from the upper pouch, commonly known as PB’ing (Productive Burping). This is not to be considered normal. The patient should consider eating less, eating more slowly, or chewing their food more thoroughly. Occasionally, the narrow passage into the larger / lower part of the stomach may become blocked by a large portion of unchewed or unsuitable food.
