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.
