Lap Band

What's the right solution for me?

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

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.

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™ ( 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.”
