Adjustable Gastric Band
Adjustable Gastric Banding promotes weight loss by reducing the capacity of the stomach through a band fastened around the upper stomach to create a new, smaller pouch. As a result, patients experience a greater sense of fullness and are satisfied with smaller amounts of food.

The current FDA-approved product is known as the LAP-BAND. The adjustable band has an inflatable inner surface and is connected to an access port below the skin by thin, kink-resistant silicone tubing. The port allows the surgeon to adjust the band, impacting the amount and consumption rate of food. This affects the patient's rate of weight loss. Adjustments to the band are performed on an outpatient basis and are determined by the patient's weight.
