Surgical Procedures: Gastric Sleeve Resection
Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Resection
Laparoscopic gastric sleeve resection is an exciting weight loss surgery option at our practice that combines some of the advantages of gastric bypass and LAP-BAND® System surgery. Also called sleeve gastrectomy, the procedure works by permanently reducing the size of the stomach by approximately 70 percent, limiting the amount of food it can hold. Patients feel fuller faster and longer, ultimately leading to significant weight loss.
