What is Sleeve Gastrectomy?
This procedure is also called laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
It is the surgical procedure that is primarily preferred and commonly performed in obese patients. Major aim is to reduce capacity of stomach in terms of volume. In simplest terms, approximately 70-80 percent of stomach is removed and the stomach is reconstructed in the form of a tube.
Small intestines are not touched or modified in this procedure and therefore, absorption of nutrients is not affected; if there is not any problem in oral intake, vitamin or element deficiency is not expected.
Pre- and Post-operative Process
Following laboratory and radiology testing as well as endoscopic examination, a detailed evaluation will be made by physicians of relevant departments.
You will be hospitalized on the day of surgery. Total hospital stay is 3 days. Your surgeon and dietitian will inform you about necessary details at discharge phase and you will be supported and followed up even after you are discharged.
