What is Sleeve Gastrectomy?

A sleeve gastrectomy is a surgical option that restricts food intake by removing a large portion of the stomach. This is done to encourage the feeling of fullness and allow for weight loss goals to be obtained.

This procedure is similar to gastric bypass but does not entail the rerouting of intestines to the stomach.

Am I a Candidate for Sleeve Gastrectomy?

Obesity is a common condition, and many people are found to be candidates for Sleeve Gastrectomy. If diet and exercise do not help with weight loss, other conditions such as disease or genetics may be the underlying cause.

  • Six months of supervised attempts at weight-loss
  • A body mass index (BMI) of 35 or higher
  • One obesity-related condition

It’s best to seek a consultation with a weight loss surgery expert to decide on the best treatment option.
