Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Banding


Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed to treat obesity. It involves placing an adjustable silicone band around the upper part of the stomach to create a small pouch, which limits food intake and promotes a feeling of fullness after consuming smaller portions. The band can be adjusted over time to control the rate at which food passes through the stomach.
