You’ve probably already heard of LAP-BAND®. But do you know anything about oBand®? oBand® has carved its own niche in the bariatric field over the past several years. oBand® stands apart from the rest due to our mission that is predicated on bringing the highest level of weight loss & Lap Band after-surgery care to our patients in Miami. Our mission is: “To eradicate obesity by promoting, encouraging and enhancing outpatient bariatric surgical care, research and education for the benefit of all patients.” Our service goes far beyond the oBand® surgery process itself. Our team of LAP-BAND surgeons, administrators and patient advocates are here to help you throughout the entire process. This process includes an initial point of contact, a free evaluation or seminar, surgery, and post operative checkups and support. Furthermore, should your health insurance plan lack bariatric coverage, our patient advocates will assist you throughout the appeals process.

State of the Art Equipment and Facilities
oBand® Miami’s facilities meet or exceed the requirements set forth by the Joint Commission and ACS. Our resources offer our patients hospital level safety in an outpatient environment. oBand® Miami is the ONLY outpatient facility in the United States to offer bariatric surgery using the da Vinci Surgical SystemÂ®. By doing so, our Lap Band surgeons are afforded precise robotic movements to allow for greater surgical accuracy and shorter recovery time. This minimally invasive laparoscopic approach allows the majority of our patients to go home in less than two hours and return back to work in less than two days. Our team of surgeons can also conduct effective and minimally invasive gastric bypass and gastric sleeve surgeries.
More Than Surgery
As an outpatient bariatric facility that includes clinics and surgery centers, oBand® Miami is constantly seeking to minimize your surgery and recovery time and get you back home and to your normal daily activities as soon as possible. Although surgery is undoubtedly the most important step in your weight-loss journey, we understand that the patient’s needs reach much farther than the procedure itself. oBand® Miami has developed a customer-friendly program to meet your needs at every step 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 follow through on our mission.
