Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy
With the sleeve gastrectomy procedure, the stomach is divided vertically, reducing its capacity by about 80%. The remaining portion of the stomach is about the size and shape of a banana. Although this procedure reduces the size of the stomach, it allows the digestive system to function naturally, which lowers the risk of complications. In this operation, there is no manipulation of the small intestine and no implanting of a foreign body.
