Sleeve gastrectomy is one of many treatments Summit Health provides. Sleeve gastrectomy, which can be carried out on its own or in conjunction with gastric bypass surgery, can result in significant weight loss. Any inquiries you may have regarding a sleeve gastrectomy will be gladly addressed by the staff at Summit Health.
With the help of the sleeve gastrectomy weight-loss procedure, the stomach’s size is significantly reduced, which restricts how much food an individual can eat. With a stapling tool, a thin “sleeve” about the size of a banana is created during a procedure known as vertical sleeve gastrectomy, which reduces the size of the stomach. The stomach is removed from the body except for a small portion that is between 70 and 80 percent of its original size. Since the body can digest and absorb food and nutrients after surgery, this bariatric procedure is known as an absorptive procedure. The sleeve gastrectomy procedure cannot be reversed, in contrast to gastric bypass surgery.
