Gastric Sleeve Surgery
The Gastric Sleeve Surgery, or Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy is a weight loss surgery done by removing a large portion of your stomach.
The new, smaller stomach is about the size of a banana. It limits the amount of food you can eat by making you feel full after eating small amounts of food.
You will receive general anesthesia before this surgery. This will make you sleep and keep you pain-free.
The surgery is usually done using a tiny camera that is placed in your belly. This type of surgery is called laparoscopy. The camera is called a laparoscope. It allows your surgeon to see inside your belly.
