How Gastric Sleeve Changes People’s Lives
Frequently Asked Questions
Sleeve gastrectomies help patients lose weight in two key ways: by decreasing the overall size of the stomach and removing the portion of the stomach that releases hormones responsible for feelings of hunger.During a sleeve gastrectomy, most of the stomach is removed, leaving behind only a sleeve that is roughly the size of a banana. This includes the upper portion of the stomach that releases hormones that stimulate feelings of hunger. The entire surgical procedure typically takes between one and two hours to complete, and is performed with the daVinci® surgical robot. Because the overall size of the stomach is significantly decreased, patients are able to feel full after consuming fewer calories.
