Gastric Sleeve Surgery

Category

Gastric sleeve surgery, also called sleeve gastrectomy, is a weight loss surgery that removes about %80 of the stomach and restricts the amount of food that can be eaten. Like other weight loss surgeries such as gastric bypass, gastric lap band and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy also promotes weight loss by changing and reducing hormonal hunger signals between the stomach and brain.
