The best way to find out about the LAP-BAND is to attend a seminar. They are free informational sessions where Dr. Hansen personally presents additional information about the LAP-BAND and his experience since 2003 with hundreds of placements. Covered topics include how well the band works, what it takes to have it help you the most, how much it costs, possible complications and answer questions. The goal of our program is to educate you as much as possible about the LAP-BAND procedure and what we and others have found to be the best approach for success.

There are live web-based seminars for those who have difficulty with attending a seminar in person, who live far away or who have scheduling conflicts but attending one in person is still preferred and recommended. See schedule of seminars.
