I was in my NUT orientation and they said they are doing away with the lap band due to major complications??????

Lot of places will no longer do them.  My surgeon won't do them anymore.  They tend to fail/slip after so long or people just generally have issues with them.  There are still success stories - there is a lady in my support group who is 8+ years with lapband and still no issues -   but the people who have issues seem to outweight the people that don't hence why they are starting to phase them out.

my surgeon doesn't do them anymore.

He says he is taking out old ones ( bands) every week and converting to sleeves or bypass.
