ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views regarding a study related to laparoscopic gastric band (LGB) surgery. Obese patients who undertook the LGB surgery lost much of their weight and improved their quality of life. The most effective method to reduce weight is through bariatric surgery. Further research is required to maximize the effect of bariatric surgery.
