Gastric Sleeve Surgery

World-Renowned Weight Loss Gastric Surgeon in Meridian
What is a Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
Gastric sleeve surgery is a type of bariatric weight-loss surgery for serious weight-related health problems. This surgery is also known as sleeve gastrectomy or vertical sleeve gastrectomy (VSG). Gastric sleeve surgery limits your food intake, which leads to weight loss. Bariatric surgery has been recognized as the most effective long-term treatment modality for severe obesity.

A gastrectomy (gastric sleeve surgery) reduces your stomach size which helps restrict calories and reduce hunger signals. Reducing the size of your stomach is a simple way to restrict the amount of food you can eat in one sitting, making you feel fuller faster. It reduces the amount of hunger hormones that your stomach produces. This helps to decrease your appetite and cravings and may help to prevent the impulses that cause people to regain the weight they have lost.

Let our team at the Medical Arts Surgical Group perform a systematic review of your medical history as well as a physical exam to evaluate your situation and offer the best option for you.

Types of Gastric Sleeve Surgeries
There are three standard types of gastric operations. The Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is the most common procedure. In this procedure, the stomach is divided into an upper and lower pouch. The larger part is bypassed, and the remaining snapper section is connected to a lower section of the small intestine.

Meanwhile, the Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy involves removing approximately 80% of the stomach, leaving a long, tube-like pouch shaped like a banana.

The Adjustable Gastric Band procedure involves placing a silicone band around the upper portion of the stomach to limit the amount of food a person can eat.

Bariatric surgery is now widely accepted as a safe and effective way to eliminate obesity and control other co-existing health conditions. Consult with our surgeons at MASG to know more about the safest treatment options. Contact us now!

Indications for Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Bariatric surgery is recommended for patients who have failed an intense weight loss treatment program and started to gain or regain weight. This procedure is done for severely obese people who meet the following criteria: BMI between 35 and 40 and a health condition such as sleep apnea, high blood pressure, heart disease, or type 2 diabetes. Gastric sleeve surgery removes a large portion of your stomach, leaving behind a narrow “sleeve.”
Surgical Options for Gastric Sleeve Conditions

Different types of bariatric surgeries may be appropriate for different patients. For instance, indicators for a sleeve gastrectomy may differ from gastric bypass surgery indications. MASG offers robotic bariatric surgery which uses smaller incisions, leaves fewer visible scars and reduces the risk of infection.
