Single Incision Gastric Band


Single incision surgery refers to procedures performed using one small incision.  This method is minimally invasive and leads to best cosmetic results. Often the incision can be hidden in the belly button, leaving virtually no scar.  Dr. Mehta is one of the few surgeons in the country to offer the Gastric band using 1 incision instead of the customary 4-5 incisions. With this improved technology, the entire procedure can be done through the belly button leaving virtually no visible scar, making this the next generation in performing minimally invasive surgeries.


What can I expect after treatment?
•    Same-day procedure
•    Return to work within 3-4 days
•    Liquid diet post-surgery, and progressed incrementally to solid diet over 3 weeks
•    You will be guided every step of the way by Dr. Mehta, Nutritionist, Nurse Practitioner, and the office staff who are Dr. Mehta’s patients and have had bariatric surgery themselves.
•    Patients can feel satiety after smaller portions of food, and can lose significant weight
•    Eating a high protein, low calorie, low fat, low carbohydrate diet, and living an active lifestyle will optimize weight loss.
•    Frequent follow-ups and band adjustments are done in the office, which are pertinent to adequate weight loss.
