At DayOne Health, we understand your struggle with obesity and have developed an outpatient surgical weight loss program that helps you safely and effectively lose weight. The LAP-BAND© System is a safer, adjustable, reversible alternative to gastric bypass. And because it's minimally invasive, you go home the same day as surgery. Our comprehensive support program ensures that you stay healthy, lose weight and keep it off!

DayOne Health, located in downtown Chicago, was the first surgery center in the Midwest to perform the Lap-Band procedure on an outpatient basis.
