Vertical banded gastroplasty is designed for long-term weight loss for obese patients. Not as invasive as some weight loss surgery, the surgeon places a band around the stomach via laparoscopic surgery. The band placement means that the patient feels replete after eating only a small portion of food and as such should continuously lose weight. A vertical gastric band is placed around the stomach by laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) under general anesthesia. The surgeon makes a few small incisions in the abdomen through which he will insert the instruments and a camera. The camera enables the surgeon to see inside and to control the instruments. A small tunnel is made behind the top of the stomach and the band is wrapped around and then locked securely to form the small stomach pouch. The band is left empty or only partially filled for the first 6-8 weeks after surgery.
