Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths in America. The most related illnesses to obesity are diabetes and heart diasease. The aim of obesity surgery, also known as weight loss surgery or bariatric surgery is to limit the amount of your food intake.

Adjustable stomach band is another type of surgery which is less severe and which brings forth less complications. Although this method too limits the amount of food that can be taken up by the body, the procedure is reversible upon request of the patient. This is best for children. Side-effects such as nausea or abdominal pain can be suffered by the patient following the implanting of the band.
