Sleeve Gastrectomy  

Also known as the gastric sleeve procedure, sleeve gastrectomy is available for patients seeking to overcome severe obesity. About three-quarters of the stomach is removed, leaving a pouch in the shape of a banana or tube, which restricts food intake and results in long term weight loss. Health benefits include increased mobility, improved respiratory function and longer life expectancy. Patients tend to go home within one or two days after surgery.
