Sleeve Gastronomy Procedure
A sleeve gastrectomy or gastric sleeve is a surgical procedure performed in patients who are significantly overweight (morbidly obese). The aim of the surgery is to assist these patients in losing weight by restricting the amount they can eat. In addition to weight loss, the procedure can assist in reducing the need for medications for hypertension and diabetes.
What to expect
Weight loss surgery involves a process of assessment and preparation prior to undergoing the procedure. It is very important to ensure that you are the right candidate for the procedure, that the procedure has the best chance of being effective and that you are prepared mentally, physically, psychologically and emotionally for the changes that are about to occur.
