Also called the gastric sleeve, removes about 80 percent of the stomach, reducing it to a thin vertical sleeve. The procedure helps you lose weight by restricting the amount of food you can eat and helping you feel full faster.
How Gastric Sleeve Helps
The surgery also affects the levels of hormones that impact hunger, your feelings of fullness and blood sugar control. Gastric sleeve patients typically stay at our hospitals for two days after surgery. When combined with permanent commitments to healthy eating and regular exercise, a gastric sleeve can help overweight or obese individuals lose pounds and improve their overall health.
