Adjustable Gastric Banding


Surgeons place an adjustable, silicone band around the upper part of the stomach to reduce the amount of food the patient’s stomach can hold. The adjustment process can be done as an outpatient procedure in a matter of minutes and helps drive the rate of weight loss. This less invasive approach does not involve stomach stapling or cutting or intestinal rerouting. Adjustable gastric banding is the only adjustable and reversible surgical weight-loss option currently available in the United States.
