Gastric band consultation. Bariatric consultant demonstrating how a gastric band works. 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. Bariatrics is the branch of medicine that deals with obesity.
