Procedure description:

The Gastric Sleeve/sleeve gastrectomy procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that takes less than an hour to perform.

In this procedure a thin vertical stomach is created into a narrow tube like a banana. The remaining stomach is removed.

How it works:

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure that by creating a smaller stomach pouch, limits the amount of food that can be eaten at any one time. You feel full sooner and stay full longer. As you eat less food the body will stop storing excess calories and start using its fat supply for energy. In addition by removing a part of the stomach we eliminate a portion of the hunger hormone Grehlin which causes a decrease in appetite. Food passes through the digestive tract in the usual order allowing for normal digestion.
