Weight Loss Surgery Procedures

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as gastric sleeve surgery, involves laparoscopically or minimally invasively removing approximately 75-85 percent of the stomach. The remaining stomach takes the shape of a tube or “sleeve” and is about the size of a banana. This procedure limits the amount of food you can eat and helps you feel full sooner. It allows for normal digestion and absorption. Food consumed passes through the digestive tract in the usual order, allowing it to be fully absorbed in the body.
