Gastric Sleeve

Gastric Sleeve

Sleeve Gastrectomy is one of the most used stomach reduction methods in the treatment of obesity. In obesity patients who cannot lose weight by normal means, 80% of the stomach is removed and turned into a tube. Thus, the feeling of hunger is greatly reduced in patients and a balanced weight loss process begins.

How is Sleeve Gastrectomy Done?

Before Sleeve Gastrectomy, necessary examinations are performed and the operation is ensured to be performed smoothly. The procedure performed under general anesthesia can take between 45 minutes and 1 and a half hours. Imaging is performed with the help of a camera through the holes opened in the stomach area and stomach reduction is performed. Recovery time is very short in the surgery performed with laparoscopy technique.
