Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve Gastrectomy

Is a surgical procedure that induces weight loss by restricting food intake. With this procedure, which is usually performed laparoscopically, the surgeon removes approximately 75 percent of the stomach. 

During this operation, the bigger side of the stomach is vertically cut and taken out and a new stomach with a volume of 150-200 cc is formed.

The decrease in stomach volume leads to restriction of food intake whereas the feeling of fullness due to the removal of the fundus section of stomach (that secretes ghrelin hormone known as ‘hormone of hunger’) supports the weight loss by decreasing the appetite.
