Healthy Geezer: The skinny on obesity surgery

Wednesday, January 1, 2014 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was in the news a while ago for getting obesity surgery. What exactly did he have done and does it work?

Governor Christie had Adjustable Gastric Band (AGB) surgery which limits food intake with a band around the top of the stomach. The size of the restriction can be adjusted with a circular balloon inside the band. AGB works mainly by decreasing food intake. The snugger the band, the less hungry people feel.
