Here's a really cool video created by leading weight loss surgeon Dr. Ernest Rehnke from Palms of Pasadena Hospital in the US. It's all about the lap band procedure. The video first goes on to explain why lap band surgery is so important to many people and then you get a brief but very informative over the shoulder view or Dr Rehnke performing a lap band procedure on a patient.
A couple of things you should take from this video clip are firstly the teams undoubted professionalism and skill in what to them has become a very straightforward and routine surgical operation and secondly just how little disruption there is to the body and tissues surrounding the stomach itself.
Perhaps the only concern for many might be the lap band port which is actually set back in to the abdomen at the end of the lap band procedure.
Go check out the video clip here though, it's a must watch if you're considering this for yourself - lap band procedure
