Gastric banding is a form of weight-loss (bariatric) surgery. It’s used to treat people with severe obesity who haven’t been able to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. It’s most often done in adults. But in some cases it may be a treatment choice for a teen. 

A healthcare provider may advise surgery for a teen who has a body mass index (BMI) of 40 to 50 or more. Or surgery may be advised for a teen with a BMI of 35 to 40 or more and other health problems such as type 2 diabetes or sleep apnea. 

There are two types of this operation: 

  • Open surgery
  • Laparoscopic surgery
