The Gastric Sleeve often called sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG) is an operation which facilitates weight loss by permanently reducing the size of the stomach. During this procedure the left side of the stomach is surgically removed. Hunger is controlled because a portion of the stomach that produces the hunger hormone Ghrelin is removed. Stomach stapling is then used to create a gastric sleeve. This results in a new stomach which is roughly the size and shape of a banana. Since this operation does not involve any re-routing or reconnecting of the intestines, it is a simpler and reportedly safer operation than the gastric bypass. Gastric Sleeve surgery does not bypass any part of the stomach or small intestine and allows the digestive system to function normally. Unlike the LAP-BAND procedure, the sleeve gastrectomy does not require the implantation of an artificial device inside the abdomen and adjustments or fills are not required. Gastric Sleeve or Sleeve Gastrectomy is a restrictive procedure, not a malabsorptive procedure.
