Sleeve Gastrectomy is one of the most rapidly growing weight loss surgery options. Sleeve gastrectomy offers various advantages over other procedures, which includes much less chances of complications, it is very effective, the down time is much less, it is easier to perform and is less expensive. The problems associated with gastric bypass such as dumping syndrome and malabsorption is also not associated with sleeve gastrectomy.

The effectiveness of Gastric sleeve surgery lies in the mechanism in which sleeve gastrectomy works. Gastric Sleeve surgery works through two weight loss mechanisms. One, it limits the food stomach can hold by making the stomach smaller and two the fundus part of stomach is removed which secretes the hormone ghrelin which makes a person feel hungry. Thus a vertical sleeve gastrectomy leads to effective weight loss.

With sleeve gastrectomy surgery, the surgeon removes 60 percent of the stomach so that it looks like a tube or “sleeve”, thus the name sleeve gastrectomy. The ideal candidates for sleeve gastrectomy are those who are 100 pounds above ideal body weight or have obesity related problems such as diabetes, hypertension or sleep apnea.

The outcomes of gastric sleeve surgery are very rewarding. Unlike the Lap band procedure, the gastric sleeve does not require the implantation of an artificial device in the abdomen and is much safer than gastric bypass or duodenal switch procedures. The surgery also minimizes the chance of ulcer occurring. Gastric sleeve surgery is a first stage procedure for low BMI patients and can be done laparoscopically in patients weighing over 500 pounds.
