Adjustable Gastric Banding (AGB)

This is known as a restrictive bariatric surgery because it restricts food intake and does not interfere with the normal digestive process. In this procedure, a hollow band made of special material is placed around the stomach near its upper end, creating a small pouch and a narrow passage into the larger remainder of the stomach. The band can be tightened or loosened over time by increasing or decreasing the size of the passage, and thus the amount of food the body needs to feel full.*
