testimonial for surgery abroadI've been looking for a good weight loss clinic when I found surgeryprice. I went to the recommended clinic to have gastric sleeve...After I got home, weight has gone steadily downhill, and health has become better and better. I only regret I have not done this earlier. Nothing to be nervous about or be afraid of. I recommend Surgery price. They offered a fantastic clinic abroad, only much cheaper and better service. Jane, gastric sleeve, UK

About gastric banding

Gastric banding surgery results in considerable weight loss because it limits the capacity of food that a person can consume. The surgery is done under general anaesthesia.

Through small incisions a surgeon inserts a viewing camera and surgical instruments, then he inserts a band and adjusts it around the upper part of the stomach dividing the stomach into 2 parts. A newly created small pouch is connected to the lower part through small access. To put it precisely, the function of a band is to make a person eat less and feel fuller.
