Adjustable Gastric Band

Adjustable Gastric Band for Weight Loss

The adjustable gastric band is a weight loss procedure where patients can expect to lose about 35 to 50 percent of their excess weight.

This operation is purely restrictive and limits the amount of food a person can consume.

Restriction Leads to Weight Loss

An inflatable band is placed around the stomach, restricting the amount of food a person is able to consume. The band can be loosened or tightened by injecting sterile water into the band in the physician’s office.
