Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding

Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding, commonly referred to as Lap Band surgery, is a type of minimally invasive weight loss surgery (bariatric surgery) that involves wrapping a band around a part of the stomach to reduce its size and limit the capacity of food intake. The band used for the surgery is an adjustable, inflatable silicone ring which is placed around the stomach to divide it into 2 parts: a small, upper pouch and a larger, lower pouch. The upper pouch, being smaller, fills up quickly with food giving a feeling of fullness or satiety. This limits excessive intake of food and promotes weight loss. The Lap-Band surgery is a restrictive weight loss surgery and does not involve cutting or stapling of the stomach as do other bariatric surgeries.
