Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy is a procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size to limit the volume of food intake at one time, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. This is done by using surgical staplers to form a sleeve or a tube with a banana shape. Patients who have sleeve gastrectomy operations generally lose 70 percent of their excess weight within one-and-a-half years.
