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.

The Gastric Sleeve surgery is on the early stages in comparison with other bariatric surgeries. However, excellent results were achieved in our Hospital, including good success rates in the weight loss and comorbidities related to the excess weight alleviation.

Certainly, this surgery has risks of potential complications, but there are risks with all the other bariatric surgery types. The potential risk definitely exists but our experts will do everything to reduce it and to help you to cope with the complications if any occur.

After the surgery the patient should change her/his diet and the amount of food. Most of the patients quickly get used to the new diet and smaller amount of food.

There are pros and cons of any bariatric surgery. That’s why it’s important to be consulted by the skilled experts in this field. In our clinic experienced doctor will carefully examine you and determine the best option for you.

I have been considering bariatric surgery for several years, but recently I understood that it is “now or never”. I felt quite nervous about this step. When I started to talk to you guys and especially when I met my surgeon for the first time in Latvia, I started to feel more secure. Thanks G-d everything went very well. After 4 months I lost 25 kilos and feel much much younger.

I find it difficult to entrust my health to doctors I am not familiar with. However, I have been recommended by a friend of mine e really good surgeon at and I’ve made a decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery in Latvia. Attitude of the doctors and nurses was amazing. During first few months I lost 23 kilos… I feel fantastic and it cost me three times less than I would’ve paid for the same procedure in my country.
