Gastric banding is a weight-loss surgery that avoids cutting, stapling or rerouting organs. Laparoscopy will minimize your pain and recovery because doctors make only small incisions.


When you elect a gastric banding procedure, our doctors will place a silicone rubber device around the opening of your stomach opening to limit food consumption and increase the time needed for digestion. For this procedure to succeed, you must follow a diet plan and consider potential calories before eating. Surgery is performed laparoscopically through small incisions, which minimizes pain and speeds recovery. The gastric band can be adjusted to modify your rate of weight loss.
