Procedures - Gastric Sleeve

What is a Gastric Sleeve?

Gastric Sleeve is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 15% of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature.

 

The result is a sleeve or tube like structure. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach, although there could be some dilatation of the stomach later on in life. The procedure is generally performed laparoscopically and is irreversible.

Please contact us to have an evaluation by one of our clinicians to see if you would be a candidate.
