Lap banding or laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding
involves the surgeon placing an adjustable band
around the upper or top part of the stomach. The band divides the stomach into two
portions – one small and one larger portion. Food digestion occurs through the normal
digestive process, but most patients feel full faster.
- Least invasive way to use surgery to reduce the amount of food your stomach can
- This procedure restricts the amount of food that can be eaten at a meal.
- The food passes through the digestive tract in the usual manner, allowing it to be fully absorbed into the body.
- The band can be adjusted to increase or decrease restriction.
- The surgery can be reversed.
