Sleeve Gastrectomy

Being primarily a restrictive procedure, the Sleeve Gastrectomy creates a new stomach that limits the amount of food you can eat at one time, reducing the amount of calories you consume. It is a safe and simple, one-step procedure, with less risk of complications than other procedures.

Patients lose an average of 65% of excess body weight at a moderate pace, over a 12 to 18 month period (varies by individual). 

Sleeve Gastrectomy is appropriate for a wide variety of patients, particularly higher-risk surgical patients or patients on multiple medications since it has less chance of altering the body’s ability to absorb medications.
