Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy Bariatric Procedure

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a laparoscopic surgical procedure in which the stomach is remodeled into a long tube about one-quarter the size of the original stomach. During the procedure, staples are placed across the stomach to create the new smaller reservoir, permanently dividing the stomach. A portion of the stomach is removed. Fewer calories are absorbed as your stomach is now restricted in size. The procedure permanently reduces the size of the stomach. This is not a reversible procedure.
