laparoscopic gastric banding

A bariatric surgical treatment in which an adjustable band is placed around the upper stomach, restricting the volume of food that can be ingested and increasing the sense of satiety after a meal. Relative to other forms of bariatric surgery, gastric banding is less effective; patients who undergo gastric banding achieve less weight loss. However the procedure is commonly employed and achieves the intended weight loss for appropriately chosen patients.
