The Adjustable Gastric Band is one of the many types of bariatric surgery.  Patients either considering the gastric band or who currently have a band in place will need to be informed about how the band works and is adjusted to achieve optimal feelings of comfort and restriction.  In this section, you will find an outline of items to consider for the creation of your adjustable gastric band patient material, as well as resources and guidelines to support this material.   The needs of each clinic will be different, and these resources are provided as a guide only.
