What is a Gastric Sleeve Surgery or Sleeve Gastrectomy?
A Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery, commonly called also a Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery reduced to about 15% of its original stomach size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach along the greater curvature. The result is a sleeve or tube like structure. The procedure (Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery) permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The procedure is generally performed laparoscopically by instruments and is irreversible.
Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery – Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery is an example of bariatric or obesity surgery designed for obese patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 45 Kg/m2 or greater in cases of patients with certain comorbidity that are known to improve with weight loss, such as sleep apnea, diabetes, osteoarthritis, GERD, hypertension (high blood pressure), or metabolic syndrome, among others.
How does Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery work?
The effective principle behind this type of laparoscopic gastric sleeve surgery is restriction, which means that the stomach’s filling volume is significantly reduced. Satiety is achieved earlier. Additionally, removal of the upper portion of the stomach also removes the site where the appetite stimulating hormone Ghrelin is generated, as a result of which patients hunger is inhibited. A reduction of approx. 60-70% of the excess weight is to be expected.
In contrast to gastric band surgery, no implant complications occur and, in contrast to gastric bypass surgery, no long-term metabolic complications occur.

How is a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery performed?
Sleeve gastrectomy is performed by dividing the stomach lengthwise and removing the larger portion of the stomach. As the name implies, a sleeve formed stomach rest is retained with a small reservoir. This reservoir has a total filling volume of approx. 80 ml. The operation is performed laparoscopically (Minimally invasive with instruments). This surgical technique does not damage the pylorus and its nerve supply, so that the stomach can release its contents into the duodenum, as usual.
