Gastric Sleeve – A Brief Overview

  • Some of the other names of this procedure are sleeve gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, VSG, gastric sleeve resection, and greater curvature gastrectomy.
  • Gastric sleeve surgery involves removing nearly three-fourths of the stomach.
  • The remaining stomach is able to hold only a few ounces of food. This helps in cutting down the number of calories ingested, which aids in weight loss.
