Gastric Sleeve

Published on May 10, 2010

The gastric sleeve procedure is now available to our patients in Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange County!!

Many patients are interested in having the gastric sleeve operation because it is not as invasive as the gastric bypass surgery, and is more effective for weight loss than the adjustable gastric band.

Gastric sleeve or vertical sleeve gastrectomy is performed by creating a long tubular pouch in the stomach,about the shape of a banana. There is no rerouting of the intestines and food travels through the digestive system in the usual manner.

Sleeve gastrectomy is also a good option for patients who have a very high BMI,or their comorbids are too serious to undergo gastric bypass surgery.

Please call the office if you have any other questions about the sleeve gastrectomy!
