Bioring is an adjustable gastric band used to treat obesity via a minimally-invasive and reversible surgical technique. Gastric bands are fitted to the top of a person's stomach. As a result, the stomach can hold less food and the person feels full more quickly. Surgical techniques, plus support around long-term behaviour change, can produce dramatic weight loss and is sometimes a life-saving option. Gastric bands are one of few treatments available for obesity following diets, drugs and lifestyle changes.
