What is Gastric Banding?

One of the most effective bariatric surgical techniques, gastric banding surgery is also one of the safest. It was first performed in 1978. The initial procedures used a non-adjustable band around the top part of the stomach to divide it into two pouches. Unfortunately, the pouches gradually dilated, and the operation proved ineffective for long-term weight loss.

By 1986, scientists had developed an adjustable band lined with an inflatable balloon, and it proved much more effective at reducing weight for patients. If you’re considering adjustable gastric lap band surgery, the surgical practice at bariatric surgery center of Advanced Surgical & Bariatrics of NJ, PA (ASBNJ) enjoys a world-class reputation. Their commitment to quality patient care is second to none, and they have five convenient locations in northern New Jersey to serve you.

Our practice uses the LAP-BAND ™ gastric banding system. We implant two devices in the abdomen: a silicone band and an injection port. The silicone band is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating two connected chambers of the stomach. The injection port is attached to the abdominal wall underneath the skin and connected to the lap-band with soft, thin tubing. The lap-band is adjustable and several adjustments will be made periodically after the procedure is completed. The Physician uses a needle to inject saline solution into your band through the port, increasing the amount of restriction provided by the band, which in turn can help you feel fuller.
