Gastric Sleeve Vertical sleeve gastrectomy is an advanced bariatric procedure that removes 80% of your stomach, leaving you with a much smaller, sleeve-shaped organ that holds 100 to 150 mL of food and liquid. Because your stomach is significantly smaller, you will become fuller faster and consume less overall. Sleeve gastrectomy is quite safe, and leaves all nerves and sphincter muscles untouched. Though it is a relatively new procedure, it has been proven highly effective, and Dr. Wadiwala performs more gastrectomies than any other procedure. Read More

Dr Ricardo Bonnor Houston 12756
Gastric Sleeve This is the first component of a BPD-DS where the stomach is reduced in size by removing the lateral 2/3rds leaving the stomach in the shape of a tube. Sometimes it is offered to patients as part of a two stage Bypass operation particularly if they are super obese ( BMI>60) because it allows good weight loss until the patient gets down to a safe weight and the more radical bypass can then be offered laparoscopically when they are at a safer weight. The residual stomach capacity is about 200mls so a generous entree should be possible. Read More

Dr Carlos Ferrari Houston
Gastric Sleeve Although the gastric sleeve is a restrictive procedure in the United States for its safety, lack of significant complications and steady weight loss. The operation involves removing a large part of the stomach that resembles a long tube (gasatric sleeve). Recent studies show that there is also a metabolic effect significant enough to help diabetic patients. Side effects include gastroesophageal reflux. This is an effective procedure for all patients with exception of those who already suffer with gastroesophageal reflux. Read More

Gastric Sleeve 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. Read More

Dr Robert Marvin Houston 12767
Gastric Sleeve The primary means by which the Gastric Sleeve operation works is by removing the storage capacity of the stomach. Because of this the patient has a subjective feeling of fullness with a much smaller amount of food. This means that he/she can more easily control his/her hunger and stop eating sooner. The new capacity of the narrower stomach is hard to measure but likely is between 4 and 8 ounces. Read More
