Gastric Band Procedure
A silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach and attached by a tube to an access port placed beneath the skin. By injecting saline into this port, the balloon in the band is inflated creating a small gastric pouch above it.
This restricts the amount of food intake and also causes early satiety. The restriction caused by the band can be adjusted by decreasing or increasing the volume of the balloon as required.
