Fluoroscopy and Lap-Band Adjustment

Once you undergo the Lap-Band procedure, the expert team of weight loss specialists at the Pacific Med Health Group will continue to monitor your progress and ensure that the Lap-Band device is working properly. One of the most common imaging procedures that assesses the functionality of the Lap-Band is called fluoroscopy. It allows our physicians to make sure that the band is positioned correctly to yield the desired results.

If we detect any issues with the band, we will perform the Lap-Band adjustment to promote healthy weight loss. Regardless of when or where you had your bariatric procedure done, we will not let minor imperfections to stand in the way of your weight loss progress.

Every Lap-Band patient should receive a follow-up fluoroscopy to ensure that the device is situated correctly and working properly. In the course of this simple procedure, the patient will be asked to drink a liquid contrast agent. As the fluid goes down your esophagus and stomach, our weight loss specialist will take images and monitor the functionality of your Lap-Band. The entire procedure only takes about five minutes to perform. The results of fluoroscopy are typically available right away

  • Came in feeling down due to weight gain, but Dr. Au explained the gain was very little and things will turn around. He really made me feel a lot better. Thank you, Dr. Au!
