What is Bariatric, Obesity or Weigh Loss Surgery?
Obesity is a serious, chronic disease that is known to reduce lifespan, increase disability and lead to many serious illnesses.
Bariatric surgery or Obesity surgery (weight loss surgery) at leading hospitals includes a variety of procedures performed on patients who are obese and extremely overweight. In bariatric surgery, obesity surgery or weight loss surgery is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach through the removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or duodenal switch or stomach bypass) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach bypass (gastric bypass surgery).
Long-term studies show the procedures cause significant long-term loss of weight, recovery from diabetes, improvement in cardiovascular risk factors, and a reduction in mortality. Patients who have received a bariatric surgery or weight loss surgery, especially Laparoscopic Gastric Sleeve Surgery – Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy returned to better life situation after.

What is a Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy?
A Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy 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 Sleeve Gastrectomy) 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 a 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?
The laparoscopic 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.
