A laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, generally called a lap-band is an inflatable silicone device set around the top portion of the stomach to treat obesity, intended to slow consumption of food and subsequently reduce the amount of food consumed. Adjustable gastric band surgery is a case of bariatric surgery intended for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more—or between 35 and 40 in cases of patients with certain comorbidities that are known to enhance with weight loss, like diabetes, osteoarthritis, GERD, hypertension.
