What Is Gastric Banding (Lap-Band) Surgery?

Adjustable gastric banding works by placing a band around the upper most part of the stomach, separating the stomach into one large and one small portion, which can hold about one ounce of food. The food from small pouch in the stomach empties into the closed-off portion of the stomach and then resumes the normal digestive process.
