Laparoscopic Adjustable Gastric Band (LAGB) Surgery

Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) is weight loss surgery. After gastric bypass, it is the most common bariatric procedure in medical tourism. Lap band surgery makes the stomach smaller so patients feel full and eat less. The procedure helps obese people lose weight. Many international hospitals offer bariatric surgery. World-class facilities are located in Panama, Mexico, Israel, Thailand and India.

Adjustable gastric banding is reserved for obese people who cannot lose weight through diet and exercise. They often have other medical problems. Surgery involves several small abdominal incisions. Surgeons use laparoscopic instruments to perform the surgery. A ring device portions off the stomach, and saline injections adjust the band for weight loss. Adjustments happen several weeks after surgery. Medical tourism destinations are prime recovery environments for patients awaiting band adjustments.
