Gastric stapling surgery, also called gastric banding surgery, is a type of bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) procedure performed to limit the amount of food a person can eat. In gastric banding surgery, no part of the stomach is removed and the digestive process remains intact. Either staples or a band is used to separate the stomach into two parts, one of which is a very small pouch that can hold about one ounce of food. The food from this “new” stomach empties into the closed-off portion of the stomach and then resumes the normal digestive process. Over time, the pouch can expand to hold two to three ounces of food. Because the size of the stomach is reduced so dramatically, this type of procedure is referred to as a
restrictive procedure.
