Laparoscopic gastric banding is surgery to help with weight loss. The surgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. The band limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food.After surgery, your doctor can adjust the band to make food pass more slowly or quickly through your digestive system.
