While people may already be familiar with the term LAP-BAND® or Realize Band, oBand® has made great strides in carving their own name in the field of bariatric surgery. The term oBand® is grounded in and derived from the company mission, which is:
“To eradicate obesity by promoting, encouraging and enhancing outpatient bariatric surgical care, research and education for the benefit of all patients.”
oBand® is fully committed to bringing the highest level of care possible to its patients. Our service to you goes far beyond the surgical procedure. We are with you every step of the way, from the initial contact and introductory seminar to the post surgery follow ups and support. Our complete, comprehensive approach towards bariatric surgery is made possible by exceptional doctors and staff, highly regarded certifications and accreditations, top of the line facilities and equipment, and an extensive weight management program.
Exceptional Staff and Renowned Surgeons
Surgery is a big step and involves making well-informed decisions. One of the most important decisions in this process requires patients to have complete confidence in the doctor performing the surgery. oBand® understands this crucial requirement and has taken steps to attain the services of highly expereinced bariatric surgeons. All surgeons must be credentialed by oBand® and meet or exceed the requirements of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
The bariatric specific expertise at oBand® is not only displayed through our surgeons, but it is exemplified through our staff as well. From the moment you walk into our clinics and surgery centers, you will take notice of the great care given and knowledge shared by the administrators, patient advocates, surgical technicians and nurses.
Accreditations and Certifications
oBand® has been granted "Full Approval" and is officially recognized as an "American College of Surgeons Level Outpatient Accredited Bariatric Center." In addition, our staff has been commended by the American College of Surgeons Bariatric Surgery Center Network (ACS BSCN) and our institution has been recognized for providing high quality care to our patients undergoing bariatric surgery. Our surgery centers are also accredited by JACHO, the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.
oBand® is proud to be a BSCN facility. The American College of Surgeons has developed a Bariatric Surgery Center Network Accreditation Program to foster high quality surgical care for patients who undergo bariatric surgery. The program manual (see hyperlink below) describes the necessary physical resources, human resources, clinical standards, surgeon credentialing standards, data reporting standards, and verification/approval processes required for the designation of American College of Surgeons Bariatric Surgery Centers.

Excellent Facilities and Equipment
oBand® facilities meet or exceed ACS and JCAHO requirements and provide our patients with hospital level safety in an outpatient environment. State of the art equipment is designed to meet the needs of bariatric patients. oBand® is the ONLY outpatient facility in the United States to offer bariatric surgery using the da Vinci Surgical System¬Æ. Precise robotic movements allow for greater surgical precision and shorter recovery. This minimally invasive laparoscopic approach allows most patients to go home in less than two hours and be back at work in less than two days.
Beyond the Surgical Procedure
As an outpatient facility, we are constantly looking to minimize your surgery and recovery time and get you back to your normal daily activities as soon as possible. While surgery is the most important step in your journey, we understand that the patient's needs reach much farther than the procedure itself. oBand® has developed a program to meet your needs at every step, so that you can experience the highest level of quality care throughout the entire process. By developing a long term relationship with our patients, starting from the initial contact to long after surgery, we are able to put our mission into action.
