Gastric Sleeve Surgery Description & Pricing
Is Gastric Sleeve Right for You?
Gastric Sleeve Surgery
A Gastric Sleeve Surgery, also called a Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy, is performed by the removal of 75-85% of the stomach to form a significantly smaller sleeve-shaped stomach. The new stomach still functions normally, but simply holds a smaller amount. The intestines in this procedure are left completely intact. As with most other surgical weight loss procedures, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy can improve many of the other problems associated with obesity, such as hypertension and diabetes mellitus.
This bariatric procedure is considered minimally invasive and is performed laparoscopically.
Due to the permanent removal of a significant portion of the stomach, this procedure cannot be reversed.
Procedure Type: Restrictive
