Overview – Gastric Sleeve Surgery
Gastric Sleeve surgery (also known as sleeve gastrectomy, gastrectomy, vertical sleeve gastrectomy, tube gastrectomy or laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) is a surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced to about 25% of its original size by surgical removal of a large portion of the stomach, performed by following along the major curve line of the stomach. The open edges of the incision are then attached together to form a “sleeve” or tube with a banana shape. The procedure is performed laparoscopically, is not reversible, and permanently reduces the size of the stomach.
Sleeve gastrectomy (referred to simply as gastric sleeve) is usually performed on extremely obese patients with a body mass index of 40 or more and typically when the risk of performing a gastric bypass or duodenal switch procedure may be too great.
A two-stage procedure may be performed. First is a sleeve gastrectomy. The second is a conversion into a gastric bypass or duodenal switch.
Patients usually lose a large quantity of their excess weight after the first sleeve gastrectomy procedure alone, but if weight loss ceases then the second step may be performed.
For patients who are obese but not extremely so, sleeve gastrectomy alone is a suitable operation with minimum risks. The sleeve gastrectomy procedure currently is an acceptable weight loss surgery option for obese patients as a single procedure. This ArrivaGroups deal is for this single procedure, gastric sleeve.
Not all patients are suitable for the gastric sleeve procedure. Patients who are extremely obese, who have had previous abdominal surgery, or have complicating medical problems may require a different approach. You will have a complete medical evaluation to determine the best approach for you and your deposit will apply to the appropriate procedure.
During the procedure, the surgeon may make one large incision, or a few smaller incisions to access the stomach. The surgeon will then remove 60% to 80% of the patient’s stomach tissue from the greater curvature, leaving a small tube or a “sleeve shaped” stomach which serves as the new stomach pocket. The new stomach is then stitched closed.
The new stomach pocket expands from the patient’s natural stomach opening down to the stomach outlet, or the pyloric valve. The stomach is made smaller and since the stomach will hold less food, the gastric sleeve surgery helps the patient to lose weight.
The decreased size of the stomach also helps to manage hunger because the patient will become full with less food. Additionally, the part of the stomach which produces Ghrelin (the hunger hormone) is removed which further reduces the patient’s appetite.
In general, gastric sleeve surgery is much less complicated compared to the gastric bypass and the duodenal switch surgery, given that the small intestine and the pyloric valve are left intact.
Furthermore, the gastric sleeve procedure does not engage in implanting a medical tool or any type of foreign object inside the body to control food consumption, as with the gastric banding procedure.
There are different approaches to gastric sleeve procedures and you will have a complete examination and full discussion with the surgeon to determine the best approach for you.
The procedure can take from two to five hours to complete.
There will be a degree of discomfort following surgery. Swelling occurs but usually begins to subside in several days. A degree of swelling may continue for longer periods, but eventually diminishes.
Recovery is rapid and patients are able to drive and return to work within just a few days. Complete diet and exercise information is included.
Only the very best highest quality FDA-approved materials are used in all treatments.
For a Gastric Sleeve procedure, the deal price is $9995. This is the same procedure generally available in the U.S. for up to $27500. This ArrivaGroups deal is for the most common gastric sleeve procedure and is appropriate for many of the cases. If your case is more complex, or if combination surgeries are desired, the price may vary however your full deposit will apply.
