With gastric banding, surgeons don’t cut, staple, or bypass any portions of the stomach or intestines, as is done with other weight-loss surgeries. The band is surgically placed around the upper part of the stomach, forming a small gastric pouch to limit food intake. This causes a sensation of fullness that lasts.

Adjustable Gastric Banding Surgery

Gastric banding with lap band surgery is unique in that the band’s size can be adjusted to help you eat less and lose weight faster.The band is held in place by minimal stitching and is connected by tubing to a port located under the skin below the rib cage. After gastric banding surgery, the inner surface of the band is inflated or deflated with saline solution to help drive the rate of weight loss. This fill level can be adjusted through the port access as needed.

Gastric Banding Surgery is Minimally Invasive

Gastric banding surgery has fewer risks and side effects than other obesity surgeries, is adjustable to meet a patient’s individual weight loss needs, and is effective in providing long term weight loss. Additionally, the procedure is reversible; the band can be removed at any time. * Results may vary.
