An adjustable gastric band is a bariatric surgery procedure for the treatment of morbid obesity. It is a procedure performed using laparoscopic technique and consists in fitting an elastic band that squeezes, like a belt, the upper part of the stomach, thus reducing its size and therefore limiting the amount of food that the patient can ingest while at the same time slowing the passage of food towards the intestine.

After it is fitted, the diameter of the elastic band (the degree of compression exercised on the stomach) can be regulated by the doctor by adding or removing saline solution.

The adjustable gastric band has a clear advantage over other bariatric surgery techniques: in no way is the anatomy of the stomach modified and if for any reason it were necessary to do so, the stomach can be returned to its initial state by further surgery.
