What is Gastric Sleeve?

Gastric sleeve, also known as sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical weight loss procedure. During sleeve gastrectomy, nearly 75% of the stomach is removed, leaving a tube-shaped stomach.

Weight loss is achieved by limiting the size of the stomach and restricting the amount of food one can consume.

Alternatives to Gastric Sleeve Procedure

Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing Surgery (SIPS)

Stomach Intestinal Pylorus-Sparing Surgery (SIPS) in Las Vegas will be performed by a board-certified surgeon, who has successfully performed thousands of bariatric surgeries.

SIPS is also known as Single-Anastomosis Duodenal Switch and is a modification of the traditional duodenal switch operation. The procedure includes:

  • Carrying out sleeve gastrectomy
  • Cutting the top part of small bowel just beyond the opening of stomach
  • SIPS bypass a smaller amount of the small bowel and connects a loop of the same to the duodenum

Gastric Balloon

Gastric balloon or endoscopic intragastric balloon is the non-surgical way of losing weight. The procedure leaves an inflated silicon balloon in the stomach for 6 months, subsequently, making less room for food.

The balloon is removed after six months.



Gastric Bypass

Gastric bypass, also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery (RYGB), creates a small stomach pouch and leaves a larger lower pouch.

The newly created pouch can hold nearly 1 ounce (oz) of food and thus restricting the amount of food that can be eaten at once.
