Patient Experience after Gastric Banding Surgery and Need for Healthcare Communication

Obesity is a growing healthcare challenge worldwide. Gastric Banding surgery is one approach to weight loss that some individuals take. In this study, participants who have undergone gastric banding surgery shared their experiences. Researchers identified three topic areas for needed healthcare communication to guide individuals as they prepare for surgery, about food and eating after surgery, and about psychosocial impacts after the surgery. Healthcare communication is needed for individuals undergoing gastric banding surgery for weight loss.
