In this video a leading bariatric surgeon from Cancun discusses sleeve gastrectomy. It is performed laparoscopically so it’s also known as laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy.
Following is the video narration.
“The gastric sleeve is a procedure in which …. staple the stomach and remove between 70 and 80 percent of it, leaving the remaining of the stomach in a way looking like a shirt sleeve. With 70 to 80 percent of the stomach being removed this causes huge amount of restriction to the patients. So this particular procedure is excellent for patients who need to lose between 50 and 150 pounds, without changing the whole anatomy of the bowel as you do in a gastric bypass.
This surgery has been very popular every day and it has almost replaced completely the gastric bypass. The gastric sleeve, it’s a .. restrictive procedure, so if we have are sweet eater, have patient with long term diabetes, long term hypertension, it’s not that you are not a good candidate for gastric sleeve, it’s that you will benefit more from procedure like the gastric bypass, where you have restriction with a small pouch and mal-absorption, by bypassing half of the bowl.”
