Sleeve Gastrectomy - Easy Solution to Your Weight Problem

Sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical procedure to lose weight. This method reduces the size of stomach to about 15% of its original size.

How does it work ?

  • Sleeve gastrectomy greatly reduces the size of the stomach and limits the amount of food that can be eaten at one time.

  • It does not cause decreased absorption of nutrients or bypass the intestines

  • It causes a decrease in appetite as patients feel full after eating very small amounts of food.

  • It reduces the amount of the "hunger hormone," ghrelin, produced by the stomach

What is Involved ?

Sleeve gastrectomy is a very straightforward procedure with low complication rates

  • It involves making five or six small incisions in the abdomen.

  • Performed using a video camera (laparoscope) and long instruments that are placed through these small incisions

  • During the sleeve gastrectomy, about 75 percent of the stomach is removed leaving a narrow gastric tube or �sleeve�.

  • No intestines are removed or bypassed during the sleeve gastrectomy.

  • This procedure takes one to two hours to complete.
