Sleeve Gastrectomy can help patients experience weight loss by decreasing the size of the stomach and reducing hunger.
For people struggling with managing their weight, sleeve gastrectomy can be an effective treatment for obesity and related conditions. It works by reducing the size of the stomach, resulting in a new stomach shaped like a tube or sleeve. Patients who undergo sleeve gastrectomy typically experience weight loss averaging 25% of total body weight, increased energy and freedom of movement, and improvements to or the resolution of obesity-related health conditions such as sleep apnea, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes.
