Bismarck Weight Loss Surgery Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy
When performing a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, we make small inch incisions in the abdominal wall and introduce "ports" in these incisions to accommodate thin surgical instruments. A narrow camera is passed through one of these ports to view the operative site on a nearby video monitor. We then remove 75-80 percent of your stomach leaving you with a new, smaller tube shaped stomach or sleeve. This new restriction will help you feel full on a small portion of food. Hormonal components that are also involved help you feel less hungry, which aids your weight loss, and improves diabetes.
