Gastric banding is the least invasive surgery of its kind and is completely reversible, with another "keyhole" operation.
Gastric banding is performed using laparoscopic surgery and usually results in a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery, smaller scars, and less pain than open surgical procedures.
Because no part of the stomach is stapled or removed, and the patient's intestines are not re-routed, he or she can continue to absorb nutrients from food normally. Gastric bands are made entirely of bio-compatible materials, so they are able to stay in the patient’s body without causing harm.
