Ethicon Endo-Surgery Gastric Band Sutureless Port and Applier

The port applier is the first suture-free tissue-anchor system of its kind. It is:

  • Safe – No sutures equals less time under anesthesia.
  • Stable – Applied port 66% stronger than a sutured port.*
  • Fast – Procedure time reduced by 19%.2

The injection port is easy to adjust, with a 59% larger septum and 46% more tubing protection than Lap-Band® ports.

The injection port is:

  • Low profile – Minimal bulge under the skin
  • Less painful – Patients report less port-site pain and less pain medication compared with sutured port sites.2,‡,§
