Sleeve Gastrectomy

What is the sleeve gastrectomy?

The sleeve gastrectomy is a weight loss procedure that removes part of the stomach and restricts the amount of food that can be eaten. Like other metabolic surgeries, it also promotes weight loss by changing hormonal signals between the stomach, brain, and liver to establish a lower set point.

How does the sleeve gastrectomy work?

  1. Most of the stomach is removed except a small sleeve-shaped pouch. It can hold 1 ½ to 5 ounces and is about the size of a banana.
  2. Patients are unable to eat as much food, fewer calories are absorbed into the body, and the hormonal signals between the stomach and the brain are changed.
  3. Typically, patients will experience weight loss and improvement in metabolic syndrome and overall health and well-being.
