What is a LaparoscopicSleeve Gastrectomy?

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

A Sleeve Gastrectomy is an operation in which a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach is created and the rest of the stomach is removed.  The sleeve is the size of a banana.

How does it work?

The reduced stomach size helps you to feel full sooner and limits the amount of food you can eat.  Food passes through the digestive tract in the usual order, therefore allowing for normal digestion and absorption.  Your appetite will also decrease.
