Gastric Sleeve – Laparascopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
Sleeve Gastrectomy, also known as Gastric Sleeve, is a laparascopic procedure which reduces the stomach size to about 10-15% of its original size. Large parts of the stomach are removed and the open edges are stapled together using surgical staples. The Gastric Sleeve is non reversible as it permanently reduces the stomach size.
If you have a body mass greater than 35, the Gastric Sleeve might be the correct weight loss procedure for you.
