Laparoscopic Sleeve

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

This surgery works on the principle of restricting the food intake, thereby reducing the calories intake leading to weight loss. Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy is performed by making 5-6 small incisions in the abdomen and then removing about 75% of the stomach using a camera and set of precision tools in a procedure lasting around 1-2 hours. This leaves a tubular pouch shaped like a banana, through which food will pass. No intestines are bypassed or removed during this surgery, thus minimizing the risk of intestinal malabsorption syndrome. It also does not affect absorption of nutrients. It reduces the quantity of hunger hormone “Ghrelin” produced by stomach, thus significantly reducing hunger post-surgery. After this surgery, patients feel full after eating a small quantity of food. It is a relatively risk-free operation with short operating time for high risk patients having BMI above 60 or other heart or lever problems.
