Vertical banded gastroplasty is done in Kerala, where it has some of the finest hospitals in the world.

Vertical banded gastroplasty, also known as Stomach stapling, is a surgical procedure for those who are at significant health risk because of obesity. When Vertical banded gastroplasty is performed, an incision is made in the abdomen, where a plastic band and surgical staples are used to create a small pocket or pouch in the tissue of the stomach. This area is not entirely closed off from the rest of the stomach, but rather there is a small hole, measuring about 0.25 inches (0.6 cm), through which food can pass to the rest of the stomach, and from there to the intestines. This pouch is small enough that after the surgery, the person will only be able to eat about 1 cup (230 ml) of food before feeling uncomfortably full.

Sometimes, Vertical banded gastroplasty can be coupled with another type of procedure, in which food is diverted past a large portion of the small intestine, preventing many nutrients from being absorbed. This translates into accelerated weight loss. In any case, a person who has a Vertical banded gastroplasty performed will always need to take nutritional supplements such as multivitamins thereafter, due to his body's decreased ability to take nutrients from food.

Vertical banded gastroplasty in Kerala is beneficial for patients who come from countries like UK and USA where surgery costs are too high.
