Gastric Sleeve

This is also known as a sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve. It is usually performed laparoscopically (keyhole surgery). It is a restrictive procedure that involves permanent removal of about 70% of the stomach, turning it into a smaller stomach, shaped like a tube. It is currently the most common weight loss procedure being performed worldwide.

Not everyone is a suitable candidate for this procedure, and this will be discussed during consultation.
