About this book

The Operation Primer provides excellent photographic step-by-step guidance to the surgical procedure. It has been produced to describe the operation in the simplest manner possible without over-simplifying. The core of the Operation Primer is the section on Nodal Points where the surgical key steps are described in detail. This surgical guide book proves essential reference material to surgeons wishing to update in this specific area.

The Operation Primer Laparoscopic Gastric Banding refers especially to surgeons, who wish to familiarize themselves with minimal invasive stomach-narrowing surgical techniques. The adjustable gastric band has become an established and effective surgical method in obesity surgery. This Operation Primer is an excellent teaching tool advocating a standardized technique for applying an adjustable gastric band not only for those who begin but also for experienced surgeons. It gives a detailed overview of the patients’ preparation, key surgical steps, band adjustment and pitfalls of laparoscopic gastric banding. The major goal was to provide a comprehensive surgical guide book for surgeons performing laparoscopic gastric banding.
