The Procedure Explained
- The core theme of Sleeve Gastrectomy is reducing the size of the stomach. This reduces the capacity of the stomach and gives the patient a feeling of fullness even after eating a small amount of food. The calorie intake is reduced thereby assisting in weight loss.
- In this process, the stomach is divided into two parts. The larger greater curvature part is cut and removed.
- This reduces the stomach into a small tube shaped organ.
- The hunger hormone gherlin producing portion also gets removed as it lies in the sleeved part. Therefore the feeling of hunger and food carving are minimized thereby helping weight loss.
- Performed laparoscopically. In some rare cases, an open surgery might be required.
