Abstract

Bariatric Surgery is increasing in popularity as an approach to the treatment of obesity, with a consequent benefit on co-morbid conditions. Laparoscopic gastric banding, as discussed herein, in a relatively safe, simple procedure in comparison with Roux-en-Y gastric bypass. The former technique offers comparable weight loss, but with some compromise on resolution of metabolic co-morbidities. The advantage, mainly relating to patient safety, makes laparoscopic gastric banding an effective option for any obese individual in whom weight loss surgery is indicated.
