Gastric Band Bariatric Procedure

The laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding procedure is a procedure in which a small gastric pouch is created by placing an adjustable gastric band around the top of the stomach.

This band is inflatable via an access port that is imbedded under the skin. This allows the band to be adjusted to meet individual patient needs. As a result, the amount of food a patient can eat is limited, creating an earlier feeling of fullness.
