We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Also called gastrectomy, the gastric sleeve procedure removes approximately 80% of the stomach, reducing it to a thin vertical sleeve. Similarly to gastric bypass and lap-band surgeries, the procedure helps patients lose weight by restricting the amount
of food they can eat and helping them feel full faster.
The surgery also affects the levels of hormones that impact hunger, your feelings of fullness and blood sugar control. Gastric sleeve patients typically stay at our hospitals for 2 days post-surgery. When combined with permanent commitments to healthy
eating and regular exercise, a gastric sleeve can help overweight or obese individuals shed pounds and improve their overall health.
