Gastric Banding at ILS Hospitals: A Minimally Invasive Solution for Weight Management

Gastric banding is a highly effective and minimally invasive weight loss procedure offered at ILS Hospitals. In this surgery, a band is carefully placed in the upper part of the stomach, creating two distinct sections. The design includes a small opening between these sections, allowing food to pass through.

How Gastric Banding Works:

  • Upper Section as Rapid Filling Reservoir:
  • The section above the band serves as a rapid-filling reservoir for food. When you eat, this upper portion quickly fills and stretches.
  • Satiety Signals to the Brain:
  • As the upper section of the stomach is filled and stretched, signals are transmitted to the satiety center of the brain. This triggers a feeling of satisfaction that lasts for several hours.

Advantages of Gastric Banding:

  • No Restriction on Food Quality:
  • Unlike some other weight loss surgeries, gastric banding does not impose restrictions on the quality of food intake. Patients can enjoy a variety of foods while still achieving weight loss.
  • Customizable and Reversible:
  • The band used in the procedure is adjustable, allowing for customization based on individual needs. Additionally, gastric banding is a reversible procedure if needed.


  • Limitation on Caloric Liquids:
  • While gastric banding is effective, it’s important to note that high-calorie liquid intake may hinder the desired weight loss outcomes. Patients are advised to follow dietary recommendations for optimal results.
