Gastric band surgery a.k.a laparoscopic gastric banding is a procedure in which an inflatable silicone band is placed around the top portion of a patient’s stomach in order to limit their food intake. The surgery typically leads to dramatic weight loss, however, it should only be performed when other weight-loss methods such as dieting and exercise have proved unsuccessful. In order to lose weight and keep it off patients must be prepared to make drastic changes to their lifestyle following the surgery, such as eating several small meals a day and getting regular exercise. At Junomedical we partner with the most experienced surgeons around the world. These specialists perform gastric band surgery for up to 80% less than the average cost in the UK, US and Australia.

The cost of the treatment depends on the general health of the patient as this will determine the complexity of the procedure. After examining your medical history the specialist will provide you with a treatment plan and price quote. You’ll be able to choose from a variety of surgeons, many of whom attained their medical qualifications from UK and US medical schools, have won awards, and are members of prestigious associations.

How Does Gastric Band Surgery Work?

Gastric band surgery is usually performed using laparoscopic or keyhole surgery whereby the surgeon inserts a camera (laparoscope) and small instruments through small incisions to carry out the procedure. An adjustable silicone device is placed around the stomach to create a small pouch which can hold a very small amount of food. The patient feels full more quickly and therefore eats less as a result. The band can be filled with saline solution to further restrict food intake after around six weeks. If necessary, the procedure can be reversed so that in time the stomach returns to its normal size. Gastric band surgery has proven to be a highly successful method of helping patients to lose weight. Patients who undergo the procedure lose on average 40% to 50% of excess weight. Although gastric band surgery is the least invasive type of bariatric surgery, there are still risks associated with the surgery, therefore it is only recommended for patients who are morbidly obese with a BMI of 40 or higher and haven’t seen results from diet and exercise, as well as those with a BMI of 35-40 who have health conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea or osteoarthritis.
