An Adjustable Gastric Band is a silicone ring with an inflatable chamber therein which is connected to a device that allows you to modify its internal diameter.
The adjustable gastric band is placed in the upper stomach, reducing the capacity of the stomach to receive food, so with a lower intake of food a great fullness and satisfaction feeling is produced. This feeling of fullness and satisfaction helps patients to accomplish a diet plan. Thus, it is a restrictive method for the treatment of obesity.
