Gastric Sleeve/Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy (LSG)

The procedure focus on removing about 80% of the stomach.

Firstly, the portion of the stomach that produces most of the “hunger hormone” is removed.

The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) is the oldest procedure performed in 50 years.

It is done laparoscopically with small incisions to create a little stomach pouch.

Later, it attaches it to the small intestine so that the food bypasses some part of the digestive tract.

Sometimes, after the surgery, you may feel sick after eating (especially sweets) and drinking, which is known as dumping syndrome.

  • Minimal risk for vitamin & mineral deficiencies
  • Same day return home after surgery of 1/2 hour

  • It might require multiple office visits for band adjustments
  • The band slippage can cause damage to the stomach (erosion)
