Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy for Long-Term Weight Loss

Sleeve gastrectomy is the newest technique in weight loss surgery, and patients can expect to lose about 50 to 70 percent of their excess weight.

Not only does sleeve gastrectomy surgery remove 80 to 90 percent of the stomach to restrict food intake, it also alters the production of hunger hormones, resulting in a decreased appetite.

Gastric Sleeve Results in Weight Loss Success

The sleeve gastrectomy procedure involves dividing the stomach into two parts: one large section and one small section. The surgeon removes the larger stomach portion, which eliminates about 80 to 90 percent of the stomach.

Gastric sleeve does not affect absorption of medications, vitamins or food.
