In a gastric sleeve procedure, the surgeon removes approximately 70% of the stomach laparoscopically so that the stomach takes the shape of a tube or "sleeve." This is the simplest, least invasive weight-loss surgery available. It is permanent, so it reduces the risk of regaining the weight. The sleeve gastrectomy is the fastest growing bariatric surgery in the world due to its success and safety.
Uniqueness of Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery
What makes this surgical procedure so unique is the elimination of the portion of the stomach that produces the hormones that stimulates hunger (Ghrelin), so patients will feel significantly less hungry after the surgery. Most patients can expect to lose 60 to 100% of their excess body weight over a 12 – 18th month period with the sleeve gastrectomy.
