LEARN HOW YOU CAN FINALLY ACHIEVE A HEALTHIER WEIGHT WITH A BAND THAT FITS OVER YOUR STOMACH.

Potential weight loss with the gastric band.

Overview

The Adjustable Gastric Band provides a safe and effective way to achieve and maintain a healthier weight—without cutting or stapling your stomach. The band limits the amount of food you can eat at one time. As a result, you feel full sooner and stay satisfied longer. That makes it easier to adopt, and stick with, healthy eating and lifestyle habits. See How it Works
