Both the Lap Band and Gastric Sleeve surgery is done laparoscopically while the patient is under general anesthesia. Laparoscopic surgery simply means that the procedure is conducted through small incisions into the abdomen rather than a larger open incision. To begin surgery, a few small incisions are made in the abdominal wall for the insertion of long, thin surgical instruments including a narrow camera. This camera allows the surgeons to view the operative site on video monitors. Following laparoscopic surgery, most people feel much less pain than after more invasive methods of open surgery.
