Caption: Gastric band. Surgeon holding packaging containing a gastric band designed to be inserted and controlled laparoscopically. Gastric bands are used to treat obesity. The band is placed around the stomach near its upper end, restricting the amount of food a patient can eat and helping weight loss. The bands are adjustable, with an access port in the abdomen used to inject fluid to tighten or loosen the band. Photographed in a UK hospital in 2014.
