Gastric Sleeve

(Sleeve Gastrectomy)

In comparison, a full Gastric Bypass surgery consists of two stages, the first being the Sleeve Gastrectomy division and the second the Roux-en-Y end-to-side procedure, which is done to re-route and reconnect the intestines. However, Sleeve Gastrectomy surgery can be completed as a standalone weight loss procedure.

Patients on average typically lose 25-30% total body weight over a period of 12 months and are back to work after 7 days.
