Best Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding surgeon in Delhi
During the procedure, surgeons typically use laparoscopic techniques and instruments to implant an inflatable silicone band around the upper portion of the stomach. The band creates a new, tiny pouch that limits and controls the amount of food consumed. The band also creates a small outlet that slows the emptying process into the stomach and the intestines allowing the patient to experience an earlier sensation of fullness and increased satisfied with smaller amounts of food. This ultimately results in weight loss.
The LAGB procedure requires no cutting or stapling of the stomach and bowel and is considered the least invasive weight loss surgery available. The band is also adjustable and can be modified by inflating or deflating the inner surface with saline solution. The surgeon can control the amount of saline in the band using a fine needle through the skin. The adherence to monthly appointments for band adjustments the first 6-12 months after surgery is very important to achieve optimal results. Once the band is adjusted properly, the duration between visits can be lengthened. Finally, the band may need to be removed in upto 35% patients in long term owing to band related problems.
