About The Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric Sleeve Surgery is an established procedure that induces loss by restricting food intake and reducing production of the hunger hormone.
With this procedure, the surgeon removes approximately 70-80% of the stomach (through only a few very small incisions) so that the stomach takes the shape of a tube or “sleeve”, like a long sleeve shirt. This is the simplest, least invasive gastric surgery available. It is permanent, so it reduces the risk of regaining the weight later in life. The Gastric Sleeve is the fastest growing Gastric Surgery in the world due to it’s success and safety.
The Gastric Sleeve is much more effective than the Lap-Band, and equally or more effective, with less complications, than the Gastric Bypass (RNY).
Most patients can expect to reduce 80-100% of their excess body mass over a 12 – 24 month period with the gastric sleeve.
As you may have heard, the Gastric Sleeve eliminates the portion of the stomach that produces Ghrelin, the hormone that stimulates hunger. Because Ghrelin is made in your stomach, and your stomach is mostly removed, you will feel significantly less hungry after the surgery. No other gastric surgery offers this benefit! This combined with the fact that you will feel full much faster when eating, creates easy and reduction. Here are some facts about the surgery:
-Stomach volume is reduced, but it continues to function normally so most food items can be consumed in small amounts.
-Unlike the Gastric Bypass, there are no concerns with Dumping Syndrome because the pylorus is preserved.
-Unlike the Gastric Bypass, there is no rerouting of the intestines, thereby eliminating problems with malnutrition. By avoiding the intestinal bypass, the chance of intestinal obstruction (blockage), anemia, osteoporosis, protein deficiency, and vitamin deficiency are virtually eliminated.
-Eliminates the portion of the stomach that produces the hormone that stimulates hunger (Ghrelin).
-Minimizes the chance of an ulcer occurring.
-Very effective as a first stage procedure for high BMI patients (BMI >55 kg/m2).
-Excellent results as a single stage procedure for low BMI patients (BMI 35-45 kg/m2).
-Appealing option for people with existing anemia, Crohn’s disease, and numerous other conditions that make them too high risk for intestinal bypass procedures.
-Diabetes Type II patients are often cured of the symptoms of diabetes!
