Gastric Banding > The Day of Surgery

  • You will arrive at the hospital the morning of the operation.
  • Preparation before surgery often includes changing into a hospital gown.
  • A qualified medical staff member will place a small needle/catheter (IV) in your vein to dispense medication during your surgery.
  • Often pre-operative medications are necessary.
  • You will meet the anesthesiologist and discuss the anesthesia.
  • You will be under general anesthesia (asleep) during the operation, which may last for several hours.
  • Following the operation you will be sent to the recovery room until you are fully awake. Then you will be sent to your hospital room.
  • Most patients stay in the hospital the night of surgery and may require additional hospital days to recover from the surgery.
