The gastric band procedure, also known as laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding, is a minimally invasive weight loss surgery option available at BASS Bariatric Surgery Center. It is designed to help patients achieve long-term weight loss and improve their overall health.
The gastric band is a silicone band that is placed around the upper part of the stomach, creating a small pouch. This restricts the amount of food that can be consumed at one time, leading to a feeling of fullness with smaller portions. The band is adjustable and can be tightened or loosened as needed to optimize weight loss.
At BASS Bariatric Surgery Center, we understand that weight loss surgery is a life-changing decision. Our team is committed to providing comprehensive support throughout your gastric band journey:
The gastric band procedure may be a suitable option for individuals who have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. It is generally recommended for patients with a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 40, although each case is evaluated individually.
To determine if gastric band surgery is the right choice for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced bariatric surgeons. They will assess your specific needs, discuss the procedure in detail, and help you make an informed decision about your weight loss journey.
Dr. Jason Moy performed by bariatric surgery last month. I did enormous study on the surgery including watching 90 hours of video on YouTube. Concerned about the surgery Dr. Jason Moy had an excellent bedside manner. He is an excellent listener and very patient. His staff is impeccable. His confidence shown in me and the procedure remedied my nerves. After surgery I was expecting some of the maladies I learned about after bariatric surgery. To my surprise and because of an excellent surgery, I had minimal pain off pain meds next day, no sore throat or other irritable symptoms. I knew I was fortunate. Fortunate to have an excellent doctor and surgeon. If you plan to change you life and go in a better direction and get bariatric surgery I would expect you would want the best surgeon and doctor available. I suggest you call Dr. Jason Moy. I am sure there are other great doctors but if you are looking for a sure thing then it is Dr. Jason Moy.
I am extremely grateful for the surgery Dr.Brian Chin was able to complete. My health and self-esteem has improved since my surgery. Dr. Brian Chin is an amazing doctor and I recommend that everyone suffering from obesity and depression go see him and know that he will take care of.
I underwent Gastric sleeve surgery with Dr. Chin not long ago. I had a wonderful experience. The process for this Bariatric weight-loss surgery was made very smooth by Dr. Chin's great staff and the preparation and advice from Dr. Chin. I would highly recommend Dr. Chin to anybody thinking about having a life changing weight-loss surgery, he's one of the best Bariatric Doctors/Surgeons in the East Bay.
