Gastric Sleeve The Gastric Sleeve surgery is a restrictive procedure. Dr. Joachim Van Gucht creates a smaller stomach with staples space, thus reducing the amount of food is in the stomach. At a gastric sleeve, also called sleeve gastrectomy, is removed approximately two-thirds of the stomach (the large curve of the stomach). The remaining part of the stomach (sleeve) this takes the form of a tube.
Gastric sleeve surgery is a procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25 percent of its original size, by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach. The remaining stomach is stapled (with surgical staples) to form a sleeve, or tube, with a banana shape.
The procedure of gastric sleeve permanently reduces the size of the stomach. The procedure is performed laparoscopically and is not reversible, but can be converted to other procedures. It is a safe procedure and quite affordable too.
Like any surgical operation, sleeve gastrectomy has possible complications, such as leakage, dilation of the sleeve and other usual complications associated with bariatric surgery. However, visit to a well-known surgeon will minimise the risks.
