Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

Sleeve gastrectomy is aprocedure that induces weight loss by reducing the intake of food by the patient.

In the procedure your surgeon will remove a large part of the stomach (up to 85%) so that the stomach can then be re-shaped into the shape of a sleeve to reduce the area for food to pass.

This type of surgery is really only used on extremely obese patients where there is an expectation of further surgery in the future. Often patients also have a gastric bypass in the future.

The surgery is reliable and has achieved excellent results in patients.

As with any weight loss surgery it is important to address any underlying reasons for weight gain as these may still be applicable after the surgery. Your consultant will discuss with you in detail how lifestyle changes and dietary habits must also be strongly considered to allow the surgery to work to maximum effect with long term weight control.

Your surgery will be performed under a general anaesthetic and will require you to stay in hospital overnight.

Regular light exercise must be maintained to aid the healing process but strenuous exercise must be avoided until the surgery has settled and no pain is being experienced.

This type of surgery is not for everyone and all options will be discussed prior to any procedure.

If you are paying for your own treatment all costs will be discussed and explained prior to any treatment taking place. This will be confirmed in writing along with any surgeon fees, anaesthetist fees and hospital charges prior to admission.
