Lap Band

The LAP-BAND procedure is a surgical, gastric technique that Dr. Billing uses to manipulate how much food your stomach can hold. During the outpatient surgery, he places a silicone band around the circumference of your stomach opening in order to shrink it. When you eat, you feel full quickly, which decreases your overall calorie intake.

Because your stomach anatomy doesn’t change during the lap band surgery, the procedure is fully reversible.

What's the right solution
for me?

Schedule a consultation with our care team to hear about all of the possibilities.

Spring 2022 Update from Dr. Billing:

‘We have relaunched the Lap-Band® program. We are the ONLY program in Washington State offering placement of the Lap-Band®. While we manage many patients who have had gastric bands placed by us or others, Lap-Band® placements had stopped several years ago due to lack of corporate support. ReShape Lifesciences™ (lapband.com) has taken over the Lap-Band® System, and Transform has partnered with them to relaunch it in the Pacific Northwest. I have been placing gastric bands since 2003 and I have seen hundreds of people benefit from this technology. I am so glad that ReShape Lifesciences™ has acquired the Lap-Band® System and will help support our program’s development.”

I had the sleeve operation and Dr. Billing did a amazing job on me. I was a mess and he fixed me right up. I have started my new life because he saved it. I would recommend anyone to Dr. Billing and have already in fact. One step at a time and the time is now.

I see KarinHeusted once a month and I look forward to it. My weight loss has been slow but consistent. She celebrates even my small wins when I don’t think I deserve it. Karin is so encouraging. She always has encouraging goals and tips and I do better knowing she’ll remember to ask me about the goals we set. I would not have been consistent with my weight loss without her.

From the beginning I knew it was going to be a different journey to loose weight (After several diets and exercise programs). Dr Billing and his team have been on top of everything and the support / personal treatment received from them has been key to my recovery. They are just the best.
