Adjustable Gastric Band

A quick overview of Gastric Band

Gastric Banding is a laparoscopic procedure that involves placing an inflatable ring around the first portion of the stomach. This creates a small pouch that helps limit the amount of food a person eats.

The benefit? As the name suggests, the band is adjustable allowing for increases or decreases in weight loss. Like other weight losses, as you begin to lose weight, you may also see improvements in other health issues you have experienced, like sleep apnea.
