Obesity Surgery Brisbane Brisbane
Gastric Sleeve All operations or interventions for morbid obesity attempt to reduce the stomach capacity. This has the effect of reducing appetite and caloric intake which allows for weight loss. There are a number of different procedures which can achieve this aim and gastric sleeve resection, also known as sleeve or tube gastrectomy, is one of them. The operation consists of removing about three quarters of the stomach. The stomach is a large pouch in the upper abdomen which is designed to take large volumes of food and fluid (up to 2.5 litres) and expand when doing so. Sleeve gastrectomy reduces the carrying capacity of the stomach to about 200mls. Read More

Dr Harald Puhalla Southport 12897
Gastric Sleeve During a sleeve gastrectomy (SG) a narrow gastric tube is fashioned in-between the food pipe (oesophagus) and the small bowel, while the majority of the stomach (80%) is removed. The continuity of the stomach is not interrupted compared to a bypass procedure. The SG is a solely restrictive operation but since the removed part of the stomach is the major production area of the hunger hormone (Ghrelin), the Ghrelin level drops significantly after the SG, which decreases the food craving.
