One of the restrictive treatment methods in the form of gastric surgery in Turkey is the gastric band. One of our specialist surgeons will put this around your stomach using a minimally invasive technique. Under general anesthesia and with laparoscopy, the operation uses the so-called “keyhole method”. Keyhole method means that only a few incisions are necessary in your abdominal wall to then place the band around the upper part of the stomach.
This divides the stomach into two parts, creating a pre-stomach. Due to the small volume of the created front stomach section (size of a tennis ball), not so much food can be taken in. If too much should be eaten, there is unpleasant pressure in the upper abdomen and neck, which quickly leads to nausea and vomiting.
Advantages & Requirements for a Gastric belt
In general one speaks of a successful therapy by means of gastric band, if the patient decreases in approximately ½ kilo per week. More specifically, if approximately 50% of the excess weight is reduced by this form of treatment.
