Gastric Band or Lap Band is a least invasive surgery for weight loss and obesity patient.

The procedure involves placing a soft silicone ring with an expandable balloon in the center around the top part of the stomach. It creates two compartments of the stomach, with a much smaller top part above the band. A person eats enough food only to fill the top part of the stomach. Over time, after the meal, the food passes through the opening of the band into the rest of the stomach. It makes digestion occur normally. This procedure is adjustable and even reversible.
