Dr. Schauer is chief of bariatric surgery at the Cleveland Clinic. LGB or LAGB is laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding. A band is placed around the top portion of the stomach restricting how much food can be eaten at a time (about the size of an egg to a tennis ball). As the person loses weight, their diabetes will improve in the overwhelming majority of cases of type 2 diabetes, since obesity is central to this disease. That is what is meant by a "cure." It is only useful if the person with Type 2 diabetes is significantly overweight. Bariatric surgery (banding or bypass) is available at most hospitals, just look in your area under bariatric surgeons. You can read more in the links below.
