Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Sleeve Gastrectomy

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.
