Our Curved Adjustable Gastric Band offers a streamlined, pre-curved design and an expanded adjustment range to accommodate larger patients. It provides the same clinically proven high-volume, low-pressure design as the original REALIZE® Band, to minimize tissue trauma.
The balloon design is backed by proven performance spanning more than 20 years of clinical reports. In fact, no adjustable gastric band is safer or more effective than the Curved Adjustable Gastric Band.3
This laparoscopically implanted medical device is used to treat patients with morbid obesity. The implant is a pre-curved silicone assembly that consists of three integral components:

The Curved Adjustable Gastric Bands leverage a clinically proven, high-volume, low-pressure balloon design to reduce the potential for tissue trauma.
With the low-pressure balloon, filling does not cause the material to strain or stretch. A balloon that is not under strain is able to conform to tissue more easily than a balloon under strain. Lap Band® System balloon walls strain when filled to less than half of their maximum fill volume.1
The Curved Adjustable Gastric Band remains in the low-pressure zone throughout the fill volume range* while Lap Band® System products cross into the high-pressure zone early in their adjustment range.1
Our Curved Adjustable Gastric Bands come in one universal length, and have the largest isostatic adjustment range in the market with the Curved Adjustable Gastric Band having a 14% greater adjustment range than the REALIZE® Band.†
