The Gastric Sleeve, also known as a vertical sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, sleeve gastrectomy, tube gastrectomy, and gastric sleeve resection, involves removing a large portion of the stomach and reshaping it to become more "sleeve-like". This form of bariatric weight loss surgery restricts the amount of food the stomach can hold, as well as removes the portion of the stomach that generates Ghrelin, the hormone that causes hunger.
Sleeve gastrectomy offers an excellent alternative to major weight loss surgeries, such as gastric bypass surgery or duodenal switch surgery, and can be performed laparoscopically, similar to the small incisions made during the LAP-BAND Gastric Banding Surgery.
