Weight Loss Surgery
Gastric Sleeve
The gastric sleeve is a surgery only on the stomach and does not involve any surgery on intestine. The smaller stomach pouch restricts food intake by allowing only a small amount of food to be eaten at one time. Gastric Sleeve is now an established first procedure  (first stage of a two part surgery) to prepare the obese patient for gastric bypass. There is no reroutine of the intestine. There is no new connections made between stomach and small intestine in this procedure. There is no malabsorption. There is no dumping syndrome. Also there is no need for nutritional supplements. The potential complications of the operation on average are typically less than 0.5 %

The benefits of gastric sleeve

No changes made in the intestinal anatomy
Less complicated surgery compared to Gastric Bypass surgery
GS does not require the implantation of a foreign body such as a silastic  ring used in gastric banding.
The procedures not only mechanically decreases the size of the stomach but also decreases the secretion of the hunger hormone ghrelin which is responsible for the feeling of satiety (fullness).
The procedure offers the benefits of initially decreasing the body weight in the severely obese patient to prepare this patient for a staged procedure or other surgery at a later time.
