Friday 12th August 2011

Dr. Andrew Averbach, Director of Bariatric and Laparoscopic Surgery at Saint Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, recently became the first surgeon in the Mid-Atlantic to provide intraoperative adjustments of Lap Bands. Dr. Averbach was also the first surgeon in Maryland to perform the transoral incisionless fundoploication (TIF) procedure with an EsophyX device. His clinic is one of the top providers of gastric sleeve surgery in Maryland.

A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band (LAGB), or lap band, is an inflatable silicone device that is placed around the top portion of the stomach. It is used to treat morbid obesity.
