Gastric Sleeve

Gastric sleeve bariatric surgery at the Methodist Weight Management Institute

What is gastric sleeve weight-loss surgery or vertical sleeve gastrectomy?

  • Gastric sleeve reduces the size of your stomach.
  • The surgeon staples a large portion of the stomach closed.
  • This creates a thin stomach sleeve that holds about 4 to 5 ounces of food, about as much as a small banana.
  • The amount that can be eaten at a meal is restricted, making you feel full on less food. The body digests and absorbs calories normally.

Advantages of gastric sleeve weight-loss surgery

  • Gastric sleeve is laparoscopic or minimally invasive weight-loss surgery
  • Gastric sleeve can start the weight-loss process for patients who are too obese for other forms of weight-loss surgery

Risks associated with gastric sleeve weight-loss surgery

  • Risk of infection
  • Risk of leakage of the sleeve
  • Stomach may stretch over time leading to weight gain
