Vertical Banded Gastroplasty Surgeries
Vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) surgery is a specialized skill that involves creating a stomach pouch with a vertical staple line and reinforcing it with an adjustable band. This type of surgery is used for weight loss in individuals who are severely obese. VBG surgery requires careful attention to detail and a thorough understanding of surgical techniques in order to reduce the risk of complications such as band slippage or staple line disruption.
