NJ Realize Band Surgeons Perform First Single Incision Realize Band Surgery


Ajay Goyal, MD, FACS, and Glenn Forrester, MD, bariatric and general surgeons from the New Jersey Bariatric Center in Union, NJ, successfully performed the first single incision LAP BAND™ and REALIZE™ Band surgeries in New Jersey. Single incision surgery results in less pain, less scar tissue and faster recovery to normal activity.

The surgeons performed the LAP BAND™ procedure on a 34 year-old woman and the REALIZE™ Band procedure on a 42 year-old woman at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ. Both patients had a single incision around the belly button resulting in minimal discomfort and a barely visible scar compared to traditional laparoscopic gastric band surgery requiring four to five incisions. The incision was then closed with surgical glue, leaving no other scars from instruments or sutures in the abdomen.

"By reducing the operative site to one incision we’re able to provide our patients with both a reduced pain and recover time as well as an improved cosmetic result,” said Dr. Ajay Goyal, Founder, New Jersey Bariatric Center.
