Sleeve Gastronomy Surgery
Sleeve gastronomy surgery occurs when a majority of the stomach is removed; leaving a narrow tube of stomach so that food passes through its normal route.
You will feel full more quickly than when your stomach was its original size, which reduces the amount of food you eat and thus the calories consumed.
- Operation appears to be safer in patients who have super morbid obesity or who have advanced central obesity.
- Risk of a leak is lower compared to gastric bypass.
- Significant reduced risk of bowel obstruction and internal hernia.
- Vitamin and mineral deficiency is less common than gastric bypass.
