Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve Surgery) is an option for people who cannot lose weight by other means, or who suffer from serious health problems related to obesity.

Laparoscopic Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (Gastric Sleeve Surgery) reduces the size of the stomach which causes patients to feel full sooner and lowers the production of hunger-inducing hormones, leading to significant long-term weight loss, hopefully resulting to improved health.

Candidates for this procedure are generally between the ages of 18-65, have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or greater (defined by the National Institutes of Health as approximately 100 pounds over ideal body weight), or a BMI of 35-40 with at least one condition related to obesity. These conditions include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart and circulation problems, including high blood pressure
  • Arthritis
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Depression
Bariatric surgery is a transformative medical procedure aimed at helping individuals struggling with severe obesity achieve significant and sustainable weight loss. This surgical intervention involves altering the size or function of the stomach and/or the digestive system to reduce food intake or limit nutrient absorption. Bariatric surgery not only promotes weight loss but also offers potential health benefits by reducing the risk of obesity-related diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. With the support of skilled surgeons and comprehensive aftercare, bariatric surgery empowers individuals to take control of their health, improve their quality of life, and embrace a healthier future.
