Adjustable Gastric Band
About Adjustable Gastric Band Surgery
A simple procedure wherein a silicon band is placed over the upper part of the virgin stomach to divide the stomach into a small 30-40 cc pouch above the band and a large pouch below the band.
Unlike the ring used for banded surgeries , this band is adjustable to control the extent of restriction , thus controlling the extent of weight loss. This adjustment is done via a small reservoir placed below the skin.
