Gastric Banding Procedure

Gastric Banding is a very safe and non-surgical procedure. It does not involve cutting or stapling of your stomach and hence the risks of infections are very few. The procedure can be finished within one or two hours and the patient can be discharged on the same day from the hospital.


  • The doctors will make five to six small incisions on your stomach for the laparoscopic surgery.

  • They will implant a soft silicone ring around the upper part of your stomach so that your stomach can be divided into two compartments

  • This band is fitted with inflatable balloon which is used to tighten or loosen the band as per requirement.

  • The band is attached to a soft tubing which is placed under your skin for needed adjustments, hence no further surgery is needed in future to adjust the band. Sterile saline water can be injected through this port to tighten or loosen the band from time to time.

  • The new smaller stomach created by this band reduces your capacity to consume food and therefore even after consuming small portions of food you will feel fuller.

  • Your craving for food also diminishes significantly and hence the weight loss procedure becomes easier.

  • This procedure doesn’t involve surgical opening and hence the risks of infections are very rare. The procedure is easily adjustable and reversible and hence this makes it very safe and risk free.

  • You can return to your normal routine after a short period of rest ranging approximately two weeks.

  • The procedure does not alter your anatomy or the food absorption capacity. It is non-invasive, reversible and safe.

  • The patients can lose 40-60% of their excess weight through this procedure.
