Gastric Sleeve

What is the Gastric Sleeve Procedure?

The gastric sleeve procedure, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is a bariatric surgery aimed at reducing the size of the stomach. By doing this, it restricts the amount of food the stomach can hold, leading to reduced hunger and calorie intake. The procedure involves removing a portion of the stomach, leaving behind a slender “sleeve” which is sealed with staples.
