Gastric Sleeve Quick Facts

Sleeve gastrectomy, also known as gastric sleeve surgery, is a weight loss procedure that reduces the size of the stomach to help you eat less and lose weight.

  • Removes 75 - 85 % of the stomach
  • Restricts food intake
  • Reduces hunger
  • Average 60% excess weight loss

"In nearly 50 years of developments in the field of bariatric surgery, sleeve gastrectomy appears to be the surgical option we were looking for."
