By moving the LAP-BAND port from its traditional abdominal placement to a more easily accessible location on the chest just below the collar bone, Dr. Bagnato has reduced complications associated with adjustments.

Port PlacementThe port is extremely small and barely visible once the insertion site has healed. In this new location, the port is more easily accessible and X-ray guidance is unnecessary. This allows us to perform adjustments in the office and substantially reduces the cost of those adjustments.
