Laparoscopic gastric band removal
What is Laparoscopic Gastric Band Removal?
A laparoscopic gastric band surgery is a minimally invasive bariatric surgery that involves the insertion of an inflatable silicone band around the stomach to create a small pouch in the stomach. This limits the amount of food intake, aiding in weight loss.
The gastric band surgery is completely reversible. The band can be removed in a repeat procedure using laparoscopic techniques.
