How Does the Lap Band Pay for Itself?

A new study funded by Allergan claims that, for patients with diabetes, gastric banding in bariatric surgery actually “pays for itself” in about two years.  In obese patients without diabetes, the procedure pays for itself in about four years.

The study, published in the journal Surgery for Obesity and Related Diseases, is said to show that gastric banding is both cost effective and safe.

A Quote from Allergan’s press release:

The study evaluated healthcare claims data from 7,310 patients who had undergone gastric banding compared to claims from a matched control group of 7,306 surgery eligible obese individuals who did not have weight-loss surgery, for the purpose of quantifying the potential savings of gastric banding.

The study found that while post-surgery medical costs for the gastric banding group declined slightly, medical costs for the control group continued to rise, thus resulting in significant savings for the banding sample. These findings underscore the critical effect gastric banding has on containing healthcare costs among the target population.
