Gastric Sleeve surgery is one of the ways to deal with the problem of excess weight. Gastric Sleeve surgery is one of the bariatric surgery types which have become extremely popular in the recent years. This procedure is intended to restrict the ability of your stomach to take in.
During the surgery a large part of the stomach is permanently removed. The removed portion is usually from 60% to 80% of the stomach. A slim tube or “sleeve”, which will serve as a new stomach, is left behind. What distinguishes the gastric sleeve surgery from other bariatric surgeries? In addition to the stomach capacity reduction, the function of the stomach is not disrupted because the stomach outlet and inlet remain intact. The surgery works because during the procedure the doctor removes the part of the stomach that produces the stimulating appetite hormone.
Take into account that you should arrive to the Hospitala day before the surgery to have the diagnostic procedures done. Our anesthesiologist, surgeon and all supporting staff will meet you and discuss all the necessary topics. Only after the confirmation of your diagnose, usually next day, the surgery will be performed. It usually lasts between 1-1.5 hours. After the surgery you will recover in the comfortable room of Intensive Care unit in our clinic under the guidance of highly qualified nurses and your doctor. Then you will pass 2 or more nights (depending on your condition) in a regular room. Our doctor will plan your diet and all the recovering details.
