Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding

Laparoscopic gastric banding is surgery to help with weight loss. An adjustable silicone band is surgically inserted and placed like a belt around the upper part of the stomach. The band is connected by thin tubing to an access port just below the skin. Through this port, your surgeon adjusts the fit of the band. The band reduces your stomach capacity and restricts the amount of food you’re able to eat at one time. You will feel full sooner and stay full longer so you ultimately eat less food. Support services are available through the New England Weight Management Institute.
