Gastric Banding
Gastric banding is a well-established, surgical approach to weight loss. The procedure is minimally invasive, requiring only a few small incisions in your abdomen. The outcome is the creation of a small gastric pouch. This is achieved through the surgical placement of a biocompatible (silastic rubber) band around the upper segment of your stomach. The pouch holds the food you ingest and includes a narrow opening to the lower stomach for normal digestion. Gastric banding essentially functions to limit the amount of food you can eat. It also helps you to feel full even after a small meal. You will maintain a liquid diet for the first 2-3 weeks after your procedure, progressing to regular food over the course of approximately six weeks. Because the band is constructed with an inflatable balloon,your doctor can adjust the tension (pouch size) through a port in your abdomen as your progress and results indicate.
