Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy removes greater than 90% of the stomach.  It leaves a thin tube of stomach. This results in a physical restriction to eating due to a smaller stomach. Also food spends less time in the stomach and upper small bowel changing the absorption of food. The Sleeve Gastrectomy was initially proposed as an initial weight loss procedure in the super obese prior to subsequent weight loss surgery at a later date. The Sleeve Gastrectomy is now performed in selected patients as a single step procedure. This is a permanent procedure, which cannot be reversed.
