Sleeve Gastrectomy

What is a sleeve gastrectomy?

A sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive surgical weight loss procedure that limits the amount of food you can eat and helps you feel full sooner. In this procedure, a thin, vertical sleeve of stomach is created and the rest of the stomach is removed. The sleeve is about the size of a banana.

How a sleeve gastrectomy works to help you lose weight

The sleeve gastrectomy limits the amount of food you can eat and helps you feel full sooner. It allows for normal digestion and absorption. Food consumed passes through the digestive tract in the usual order, allowing it to be fully absorbed in the body.

Risks and Complications

Dietary Guidelines Post Operative
