Learn more about Gastric Banding

Adjustable gastric banding includes placing a silicon, inflatable band around the upper stomach that is connected with tubing to an access port placed under the surface of the skin.  The band can be adjusted in size by injecting fluid through the system when accessed through the port.  The effect is to restrict the volume of food entering the stomach.  Weight loss is slower and less than that associated with other procedures and the popularity of the adjustable band has decreased markedly.
