Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric Sleeve

Also called Sleeve Gastrectomy, this minimally invasive procedure reduces the stomach to a thin vertical sleeve. As with Gastric Bypass and Lap-Band, the procedure restricts the amount of food a person can eat so that they can lose weight.

Weight loss surgery is the first step in a life-long journey that can help people who are overweight or obese gradually shed the pounds and improve their overall health. For the procedure to be a success, however, it should be combined with permanent commitments to healthy eating and regular exercise.
