Understanding Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, also called gastric sleeve surgery, is a revolutionary weight loss surgery proven highly effective in promoting long-term, sustainable weight loss. The procedure involves removing a portion of the stomach, resulting in reduced food intake and healthy weight loss.

How Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Promotes Weight Loss

Gastric sleeve surgery promotes weight loss and health as it is a restrictive procedure designed to reduce stomach size, which reduces the amount of food the stomach can hold. Unlike gastric bypass, it does not limit the absorption of nutrients or bypass the intestines, but instead gives the feeling of fullness faster and for longer.

Benefits of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy provides an array of health and lifestyle benefits, including the following:

  • Loss of 75% or more excess body weight
  • Resolution of medical conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, obstructive sleep apnea, and many other related conditions
  • Improved mobility and less stress to the lower back and joints
  • Enhanced quality of life and increased self-esteem
  • Reduced symptoms of depression

Post-Operative Consultations

Before the gastric sleeve surgery, you will have a consultation with our medical professionals, where we will assess the current state of your health and conduct a psychological evaluation to ensure you are prepared and eligible for this type of procedure. Our team will also supply you with more information and pre-operative instructions to follow leading up to your gastric sleeve surgery.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Process

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is performed laparoscopically, a technique that refers to small surgical instruments and a tiny camera placed through a small incision to allow consistent monitoring throughout the procedure. During the laparoscopic sleeve procedure, Dr. Barnes will remove up to 70% of the stomach, leaving a smaller stomach pouch in the shape of a tube or sleeve.
