Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Gastric Sleeve Surgery Boston

Gastric sleeve surgery, also known as sleeve gastrectomy, is one of the more recent forms of weight loss surgery. Gastric sleeve surgery is a non-reversible procedure when approximately 85 percent of the stomach is removed. The stomach then takes on a tube shape or as the name suggests, a sleeve. This surgery is preformed laparoscopically and only calls for a few small incisions, which leads to a safer and quicker recovery for patients.

Key Benefits of Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the gastric sleeve procedure does not bypass the small intestine, so all nutrients are absorbed and there is a very little chance of malabsorption.  Also, the gastric sleeve procedure does not require follow up appointments for adjustments
