Adjustable Gastric Banding

Also known as: Gastric Banding

Gastric banding involves placing an adjustable band around the upper portion of the stomach. This restricts the amount of food the stomach can hold.

Stomach with Lap BandThe LAP-BAND® System is the only surgical weight-loss option that’s adjustable and reversible. During a minimally-invasive surgery, a surgeon inserts the adjustable band and wraps it around the patient’s stomach – much like a wristwatch.

The band reduces the stomach’s capacity and restricts the amount of food a patient can consume at one time – without cutting or stapling the stomach or bypassing normal digestion.
