In a minimally invasive procedure, the stomach is made smaller in order to limit the food intake and suppress hunger.
An inflatable band is placed minimally invasively around the top part of the stomach to limit food intake and suppress hunger.
Sterile saline is infused into the port underneath the skin in order to inflate or deflate the adjustable gastric band around the stomach. The adjustment leads to a decrease in appetite and an increase in the sensation of fullness.
Band to sleeve Certain patients with issues with their band or inadequate weight loss may benefit from having their band and port removed and converted to a gastric sleeve.
Band to bypass Certain patients with issues with their band or inadequate weight loss may benefit from having their band and port removed and converted to a gastric bypass.
