AIGB specializes in LAP-BAND® surgery, an FDA-approved weight-loss surgery available to overweight and obese individuals. AIGB also provides a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary aftercare program to ensure the success of our LAP-BAND® patients. Our LAP-BAND® surgeons have performed more than 13,000 LAP-BAND® procedures with a safety record that is one of the best in the industry. Our first location, the Surgery Center of Richardson, was the first day-surgery center in the United States to receive certification as an American College of Surgeons Level 3 Accredited Bariatric Center. This state-of-the-art facility is specially designed, equipped and staffed to meet the unique needs of our Bariatric patients. AIGB is committed to improving the health of each patient. The LAP-BAND® procedure has been proven to reduce weight-related health complications such as Type-2 diabetes, hypertension, sleep apnea and high cholesterol. From before the procedure to surgery and through to follow-up care, AIGB professionals guide patients through every step necessary to ensure weight loss - and good health - for life.
